    A good apache/php/mysql installation tutorial: http://www.philbrodeur.com/tutorials/server2/
    I'm not sure if this was any help, but I hope it didn't make you stupider.

    Experience is something you get just after you really need it.

    there's also a good apache/mysql/php install at http://www.apachefriends.org and another one at http://www.easyphp.org

    I think apachefriends is better.

    As for PHP, the documentation on the official http://www.php.net site is great.

    They are quite easy these days because they all have installers that guide you though it.

    If you want easier options then checkout a complete package

    It should be enabled by default. If not there should be a shortcut in the wamp start menu folder to start apache and register it as a service.

    There may also be a batch file for it in wamp's program files folder.


    If not you can register it manually

    hello degsy,
    i found out the intial problem.....the port assigned to apache was used by some other application.so i just changed the port number in the conf file in apache folder.now that apache service has started and running well.

    now i have another problem.....the simple php code which displays phpinfo is not executing.when i try to run only empty browser shows up.

    see the following basic thing is not running...please can u help me out...


    <?php
    // Show all information, defaults to INFO_ALL
    phpinfo();
    ?>

    thanx
