    phpdev question

    I have downloaded and installed phpdev423, I have apache up and running php scripts execute how do I get mysql to work? Does it need to be installed as well? I have tried to run mysqld-nt(i think) but it does nothing.

    i see now that mysql is working, but however I have another question.
    I have made a simple script
    <?
    echo " If this prints php is working locally";
    ?>

    if I create this using my html editor, that puts all the head ,html, tags in for me, the script wont run, it just returns a blank screen, if i strip everything but the actual php code, it works. Why? or why would it not work with the basic html tags included?

    thanks.

    Are you entering the script in source view or wysiwyg view?


    IMO you'd better use dreamweaver, it's more compatible with php. If you don't like it, there's always notepad, or even notepad2 (it has syntax highlighting!!)

    have you tried http://localhost/phpmyadmin?
