I have installed the latest xampp onto an xpsp2 machine with success. The splash/phpmyadmin/etc.. all work fine.
When I tried to make a simple php page with Wordperfect, save it to htdocs(as an ASII text, and DOS text with .php extension), it did not work (page not found error). I assumed that it was because it was M$ adding in things that were not supposed to be there. So I tried again with notepad, making a simple phpinfo() page, saving it to htdocs, and browsing to it in IE; and still it did not work. When I browsed to the files I made in Windoze Explorer it looked like they were just text files, even though they had the php extension, even the icons were different than the other php files that come with the Xampp installation.
I had used notepad in another xampp install on a ME machine, and it seemed to work fine. Does anyone know of any issues with XP and/or SP2 and notepad that may cause this? Do I need to use an independant editor?
Thanks very much for any info anyone may provide.
