Now I fully expect to be told to RTFM --- but here goes anyway!
I've installed Cygwin on a W2K workstation primarily for the purpose of running
Postgres and for this it works admirably. All installations have worked
Encouraged by the performance of Cygwin I decided that I would replace the
local Windows IIS 'Personal Web Server' with Apache +PHP. I started the Setup
program, selected Apache and the PHP library and initiated the installation.
The installation reported complete with no errors or warnings. I started the
Apache server and accessing 'localhost/index.html' produced the desired result -
Apache is up and running. I then wrote the approved php test script ( <?
phpinfo()?> ) and pointed the browser to 'localhost/tester.php'. No PHP!! I
checked the /etc/postinstall directory and the presence of apache-php-sh.done
rather indicates that installation was OK. To check I deleted this file, re-
installed the PHP library alone and, again, installation appears OK with no
errors. I checked in the setup logs - again, no errors. However, nowhere on
the system is the a libphp4 of any description to be found and so I can't see
how I can add the LoadModule line to the httpd.conf file.
I've spent a couple of hours Googling and searching the mail archives but have
not seen this problem refered to anywhere else. I would appreciate a nudge in
the right direction,
