I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this so I won't mind if it gets moved.
I'm having fits trying to set up a web server locally [EDITED: I'm running Windows XP Home Edition with SP2]. I'm trying to get Apache set up but I don't really understand what I'm doing.
First off I'm supposed to make sure that I 'bind' it to 'localhost' only and I haven't a clue as what that means or how to do it.
Second, I'm supposed to setup PHP to use with Apache, however , every time that I add these two lines to the Apache httpd.conf file, as per instructions, Apache refuses to start until I comment them out again;
LoadModule php5_module "C:/Program Files/PHP/php5apache2.dll"
PHPIniDir "C:/Program Files/PHP"
The instructions said to put those two lines at the top of the httpd.conf file so as it stands right now those are the first two lines in that file but I have to have them commented out for Apache to start so I'm wondering if anyone else has ran into this problem or if maybe I'm doing something wrong.
Thanks for any help.
