    just installed phpdev -- what's next?

    Hi,
    I've just installed phpdev on my PC (it is SUCH a great tool!!!!). Everything is working alright. Maybe it's because I'm really tired right now but I don't see where I should put my first PHP page to try some code... Where should I put it? Thanx... Sorry for such a basic question.

    There should be a directory in there called something like www, or public_html, put all your files in there.

    done... I start the Apache Server, type http://localhost in the url but nothing appears. Some trick I've missed? I have an index.php, the page doesn't seem to have a problem to load... it's just blank, no content... thank you very much for help with such annoying running questions

    What I do is create a folder and stick the folder in the WWW folder. You can create a new folder for different projects and stick them all in the WWW folder.

    Then when you go to the start/programs/phpdev/phpdev98_ME and launch the program you will have all your folders to choose from. Jusy open up one of your folders and the index file will be opened up.

    PS...I download it last month and it has been very good.
