    Question FREE php/mysql hosting?

    Does anybody know of any FREE php/mysql hosts out there where my members can test out forum installation/modifications and such?

    Thanks,

    Try here: http://freewebspace.net/ I believe the forums are still fairly active and may be a good place to find what you're looking for.

    ..and the previous link (localhost) was not meant to be clicked.

    Is that a joke or do you really not get what he meant by http://localhost ?!

    If you don't get it, lemme help you a bit.

    Download the proggy if your using WinMe/9x.

    There's also a XP/Nt version of such a program but i forgot what it's called.

    Install the program anyways and test the script and everything on your own computer!

    LOL, okay im just an idiot...no im not that much of newbie, I just missed the joke lol.

    havent looked into running anything on my own machine, but it actually sounds like a good idea, since i need a place to test out new stuff for my own forums...

    how would I go about setting this up on win2k proffessional?

    I run apache, mysql, php for windows each can be downloaded for windows. Download: follow the readme files on installing everything, isn't to hard to do. Start apache and php will be running, start Mysql and your all set.

    PHP - http://www.php.net/get_download.php?....2.3-Win32.zip

    MYSQL - http://www.mysql.com/downloads/downl....23.53-win.zip

    Apache - http://httpd.apache.org/docs/windows.html
    eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwww it's broke

    Foxserv and Phptriad are good. They both come with php/perl/mysql/apache.
