Be mean once in a while??  WHy??  That is not what the list is all about.  Anyway..  If you
go to
http://localhost/ and get a page that states Apache is installed and here is the test page,
then you
have it installed in the correct manner.  If you get the page can not be found, then you need
to look
at your machine locally first.  You do not have a file or the application pointing to the
correct place.

many other things to pursue.  You might try to be mean once it a while, it may work.  I don't
get the page showing Apache running.  I am uncertain about your suggestion referring to localhost
and test page.

OK.. lets get one thing working at a time.  I am not sure that MySQL will run on a Win
machine.  I believe that it is only Linux, but I am not 100% on that.  Did you ever check
with your ISP (By phone or Email) that they do not block port 80??  Sorry if you already
answered this, but it seems like there is a long pause between when you answer sometimes.
I understand that you are busy also.  Not trying to be mean.

OK.. so by turning off  your firewall, did not stop apache from seeing the net.  Do you
get the page that shows you that apache is running??  If you open a brower and type in
localhost what do you see??  If you do not see the test page, then you are not getting anything
install, and no one outside will see it anyway.

Steven:  Absent ZoneAlarm, no help.  I'm at a loss.  I might try going thru httpd.conf and
consider every entry.  I could sstart all over downloading Apache then php.  When one downloads
the source and compile, do you get to see the coding??  (silly question).  --G

Steven:  I'm doing some things for the Parkinson's Foundation; setting up a web site to evaluate
alternate therapies for PD.  The process is to accumulate answers to questions about the therapies
(testimonials) and make them available for viewers.  So, there is an accumulation phase into
a database, then a display phase.  I was working in FrontPage with ACCESS DB when a friend
revealed that not everyone has ACCESS.  Furthermore, my computer would have to have server
duties.  Hence, MySQL, PHP & Apache combination is a vast improvement.  So what do I want
with Apache?  I want to learn it and use it!!  Ditto PHP.  SQL I think I can handle.  --G
PS: I tried de-activating ZoneAlarm with no change in Apache, I'll try uninstalling it! wrote:

A Static IP is one that is issued to you from your ISP. If you had one you would know what
it is. Trying to run a web server on a line that does not have a Static IP is not very easy.
With a non static IP your IP address can change every 24 hours, or once a week depending on
your ISP.

Why are you installing Apache? Ignore my other message.
