@ Jatin , unless you have specific needs; I'd say install php using XAMPP.

Hey jatin, I have no ideas of PHP, just according to my knowledge of JSP(almost like PHP) I would say, you need not to install PHP ever.

Open your notepad, write your PHP code in it and then save as .php (don't forget to change file types from "text files" to "All files" while saving). You can also use any "web devlopment tool" like Macromedia Dreamweaver.

Correct me, if any wrong infromation imparted 😔

Thanks

I assumed you are installing PHP on your Windows desktop. XAMPP provides a simple installer for PHP, MYSQL, Apache and configures it automatically.

If you are trying to install it on a server, chances are that it's already installed.

What's your setup environment?

@Jatin - Dude, you need to install Apache because it really gels very nicely and very tightly with PHP. I have tried with IIS, but frankly, I found it not upto my level of satisfaction. If you want to put a server, make it linux, make it apache and you will be happy that you made this decision.

Hi Jatin,
I have been working with PHP for a long time on Windows and Linux servers both.

For startup on a windows machine, i will recommend my own favorite EasyPHP which is a combi installer of Apache Web Server 2.0, MySQL 5.0, PHP 5.0 and to top it all phpMyAdmin for managing mySQL databases which makes life lot easier.

You can download 25 MB installer from https://www.easyphp.org.

The installation is as simple as installing Winamp or any other software and has control panel to manage the services.

Hope u will get started with this. Keep me informed with ur progress.
