So I want to learn php, except that I don't seem to have it installed on my internet thingy, how do I do this?
I saw something about setting up a my sql server or somethig on w3schools.com, but wen I clicked the php link it looked dreadfully complex.
Any help?

Is there a major difference between php 5 and php 7?
Cause those are the tutorials that w3schools has.

Yes. PHP 7 adds a lot of lovely features that PHP5 doesn't have. I'd recommend it for beginners.

You just need the php interpreter. The built in http server works for learning purposes if you still won't use databases.

hi. So I never really got an answer on post one.
Can I have step by step instructions on how to instal everything I need to use php on my website?
I'm running windows 10, 64 bit, and currently the website is only accessible threw source, that is, it's not hosted.

Head over to [php.net] and grab the latest version, there's also install instructions in the manual [here], just skip to the windows section. There's also a number of easy install bundle packages like [XAMPP], [WampServer], or [Web.Developer], though I can't guarentee their accessibility.

XAMPP is definitely not accessible

ok, I have php-7.3.3-src downloaded. What do I do to set it up? The online manual looks painfully complex to me.

You can install XAMPP with the Win10 OCR

No problem man, I was a noob like you some years ago.
First you need to download XAMPP from this website:
https://www.apachefriends.org/xampp-fil … taller.exe
Then you install and configure it with Win OCR and you are done. You can run your PHP scripts directly

@15
Go to the folder where you installed xampp and run the xampp_start.exe file.
Your local server is activated. To test, type http: // localhost / or http://127.0.0.1 in your browser.
If you open a xampp page, then everything is working ok.
So, to test your php scripts, place them inside the htdocs folder.
@7
Yes, the xampp installer is not accessible, but there is the portable version that can be downloaded from sourceforge and used without any problems. I have it right here running on my thumb drive, very convenient.

2019-03-12 02:26:47

@16, I ran the xamppstart.exe, but php files still don't work, and I got a privacy error thingy wen going to https://localhost.

@17
How strange ...
Is some other local service using the same port 80 of apache, which is the default?
I remember I had problems with this when I used skype7, where I opened skype first and then xampp and could not access the server.
I have not had a chance to run on w10, but here in w7 it works fine ...

would the fact that I am running this on a school computer matter?
It's also the school's network.

did you allow the app through the fire wall?
I installed it, since i am also interested in this soort of stuff, and it worked for me.

never give up on what ever you are doing.

It might be Redfox, if it is on a central server the internal accessed might be looped back. Plus, you type http://localhost not https
