    Problem with installing PHP

    Hi,
    I have installed the packet of phpdev into my computer.
    However, when I open the the php command window, it pops-up an alert:
    "This application has failed to start because php4ts.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
    I don't understand about this.
    So can you explain and show me how to run ( or install) php properly...
    thx!!!

    Hi what version of phpdev (hopefully 423) & which version of windows & where did you install phpdev to ?
    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)

    Hi , in the start menu there should be a link phpdev_xp-2k or similar , click that to start apache , then goto http://localhost or http;//127.0.0.1 and see if you get anything ?

    It works !! thanks..but I have one more question which I don't think that I should post a new thread: I try my php file with the address:
    http://localhost/Foreveryoung/search.php
    the Foreveryoung folder is the parent folder, should I have to specify the directory to my file, from myDoc/.../Foreveryoung/search.php or just leave it like that...
    Actually, I couldn't get the desired result with the latter.
    Thanks in advance

    If you installed phpdev to say c:/phpdev then your document root is
    c:/phpdev/www

    meaning that your file should be located at

    c:/phpdev/www/Foreveryoung/search.php

    so find the relevant www folder and dump your files in there & try again.

    If they are already in the right place & to check if everything is working , create a file called phpinfo.php with the contents( just this)
    <?php phpinfo();?>
    and see if that works in the specified directory (http://localhost/Foreveryoung/phpinfo.php)
