I just installed XAMPP so I can run PHP scripts on my local machine. I am learning PHP and didn't want to bother uploading scripts to my hosting server to try them out. That being said, how do I run XAMPP so I can try practice scripts, and where do I load them so they will run on my machine?
I've tried to find documentation for using the different services, but I can't seem to find what I need. Can someone point me to a resource that will instruct dummies like me on how to use XAMPP for PHP development on my local machine?
At least something to help newbies like me get started.
