OK, i followed the online directions to installing MySQL/Apache/PHP4 and it all seemed to be workign until i went into (OSX) System prefrences and tried to start Web shareing (turn on apache) ....it just kidna sits there saying 'statring web sharing'. should i just redo the steps online to install apache? could it be one of the other things i installed? should i try initializing it from terminal? any help would be apreciated

ok, aparently when i try to start apache from terminal, it says the php module is garbled, and the instructions i was following warned against that, hwo do i reinstall php, can i just do it again and have it over write the garbled files?

you will have to recompile apache to get ride of that php module if you did not load it as a "plug-in".

if you did add it as a plugin then just redownload it from ?php.org ? or something and use the AddModule in the httpd.conf file.

check out oreilys Apache boook its not that bad. but the online help for apache is pretty good as is.

I recommend compiling PHP into the Apache binary and not as a loadable module. It is 'one less thing that can break' PLUS if you are going to use PHP with Apache (and MySQL) full time, this is a good thing to do. We only use a static (compiled into the kernel) method, not as a module.

tarball is just a tar file.
