Hello there! I'm starting to play around with PHP, and I learned that I need some kind of PHP interpreter (I believe that's what it was called) to see how I'm doing.

Is there any way I can get my computer to run my .php files? I have Ubuntu Desktop 8.10.

you will need to install a web server on your computer, and then install php on it.

the following tutorial is simple and should work:

http://www.debianadmin.com/apache2-web-server-with-php-support-in-ubuntu.html

if you get stuck with anything just post it here, or make a new thread.


on the line that says:

http://yourserverip/apache2-default/

you should use localhost as "yourserverip"
