[Article] How to setup Apache and PHP on Windows


Staff member
In this tutorial, I will show you how to install the Apache webserver software, and the PHP scripting engine on a Windows machine.

Note: %SystemRoot% is usually c:\winnt for Windows NT/2000 and c:\windows for 95/98/Me/XP

[*]Create a directory which will be your root directory. In this example, we will use c:\webroot. This will be the default directory when users go to your domain.
Download the latest Apache 1.3 release from http://httpd.apache.org. PHP support for Apache 2.0 is still in its experimental stages, so we are going with version 1.3.
