Curiosity regarding PHP script
- So this is server side, I assume like *.asp it means that if I do not have a
server to work from I cannot test or work with this? I do my
dabbling/learning from home on my local PC, not much chance of having server
extensions here :(
I'm correct in assuming PHP would be like working with anything else that
requires a server with extensions, correct?
(I hope I'm not too far outta my league here)
(Do my questions on this belong in another group?) Well YOU opened this can
of my worms! :) :) <these are things I see and have no one to ask, now
you mention them, who better to ask>
Also I LOVE NTP! I just found a NEW (to me) feature that just makes my
life a living HEAVEN. The click of a button does something that I spent
all of my free time on yesterday and when I was done, deleted the 'old'
files which also, for some reason deleted all of the "new" files too so I
had NOTHING. NTP says, here, click this button and make all those nasty
txt files into html files so you can just plop them into your website and
not have to reformat all the line returns 'n such.
FOOKES SOFTWARE and all Involved... I LOVE YOUUUUUUUU!!!
(Another newsgroup, I know... talking to the corner pouting.. bad girl)
I'm SO EXCITED! :)
<smile, although we are techies, we can still have fun> :)
PS: Thanks for all the links and info on PHP, now I have MORE research to

Apache server is really easy to set up on your local machine. You can
then install Perl, MySQL and PHP. This would allow you to have all
kinds of fun on your local machine.
The book PHP - Fast & Easy Web Development comes with a CD that
includes Apache, PHP and MySQL. Also has instructions for installing
all either on Linux or Windows OS. Really slick stuff. I tried
learning Perl and got really frustrated. PHP and MySQL is much easier
and as theFrank said - VERY FAST.
Check out the book here. It is a reall good beginners book on PHP.
