    I downloaded the thing and I keep running into trouble with just getting started. I opened a readme file and they mentioned that my server wasn't running php. I have downloaded xampp and it's running. However, it keeps telling me my server isn't running php.

  2. Have you looked at the installation instructions?

    Hi rjkingman,

    To start up your XAMPP, you can go to XAMPP folder and double click on file xampp_start.exe

    to check whether php is running on xampp server, make a php file with name testphp.php. in this file write and save <?php echo phpinfo(); ?>. put this file in the document root folder by default which is htdocs folder. access this page by pointing browser to localhost/testphp.php or whatever sitename/testphp.php.
