    Hey Everybody!

    Now dont flame me for doing this, but the other tutorial for Apache/PHP by Tristan was way too hard. It took me hours to configure Apache/PHP, and i thought, why not make a zip with all the files included... So here it is...

    The zip has ALL the files needed for configuring Apache/PHP, and a short and simple README,

    I hope this will help everybody whos having a LOT of trouble with Apache/PHP

    apache is a webserver, and php is a script used to write applications... many sites on the internet, including ifans.com, is written in PHP..... Installation of PHP on ur ipod allows us to create standalone, offline apps through safari with the PHP script

    if you look above at the address bar, you'll see php somewhere

    I have tries uninstalling and re-installing apache and every time I try to go to http://127.0.0.1 I get the error that reads "Safari can't open he page because it can't find the server"

    Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    Yah, its normal, now you can install PHP scripts in the /Library/Webserver/Documents/ folder

    A great one to start with would be PHPPod, an iTunes replacement for the iPod
