I'm using XAMPP a couple of years now, but it seems my installation is not 100% correct. I've met the problem when I tried to install Zend Framework. It looks like php.exe don't exists when I do the commend "zf show version". And yes, I've set an extra path variable in my computer system setting to: ";C:\Program Files\ZendFrameworkCli\bin"
Now I want to be sure what's the best way to install XAMPP in a proper way. I downloaded the zip file from the XAMPP website and unzipped the complete folder. Then I have directly a first question: what's the best location to put the xampp folder in:
- C:\Program Files
- C:\Program Files (x86) -> I have Windows 7 (64 bit)
After choosing a folder, I know I should run the file "xampp-control.exe". After that, the deed should be done, but I guess it wasn't thad good as it first seems. What did I do wrong? Is it good to set the document root to D:\Websites? If I do so, the Apache admin page is not longer available from http://localhost...
Thanks for your support!
