Hello,

I've gone through the step-by-step guide on how to install PHP on my personal computer. The one I used can be found here:

http://webmonkey.wired.com/webmonkey/00/44/index4a_page7.html?tw=programming

Everything seems to go according to plan until I hit the step that asks me to test everything by running phpinfo.php (which is stored in the htdocs folder and contains <? phpinfo() ?> as its only content.

When I go to run this file I get a 500 Internal Server error. I've double checked everything in the tutorial and can't put my finger on where I must've gone wrong.

Can anyone here help? If you need more information let me know, I'll be happy to provide it. I'm really stuck.

Thanks in advance.

If Apache doesnt work you could just use IIS. I have it on my PC and it runs ASP and PHP.

A quick and easy solution would be to install "PHP Home Edition" (all in one package) that is free and found here :

http://sourceforge.net/projects/phphome/

PHP Home Edition is a complete package including WWW server Apache, DBS Server MYSQL and scripting language PHP into one fully operational system. Including additional compiled libraries for Win32 OS and many more. Easy to install, plug and play installat

Dear Jeanco,

These messages are said that , your web server program need to tunnel.
If you use Linux, maybe you must config the file /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf.
etc....

PS: What is the popup messages, when I click the link you provide!
" You are the winner? 100,000,000. views???"
Does it is ADS? So I close it now.

The server is running on Windows XP on my laptop. I'm setting it up to run on here so I can test PHP without having to connect to the internet and load them onto a server (so I can work in the car, on the plane, etc).

As for the pop-up message, I'm guessing thats just an advertisement from wired.com where the tutorial is hosted.

Thanks for the all-in-one link, I'm gonna give it a little more time and then I'll uninstall what I've done and give it a try.
