How to start a Terminal

Postby geoffcording » 13. July 2013 02:13

I am installing some software to test Sockets and one of the instructions states: simply open a terminal and type php5 ./server.php. How do I open a terminal?

Thanks Nobbie that was the clue I needed. It was all nomenclature, I was thinking terminal as in Putty style terminal rather than DOS Command prompt. I had tried that but php5 was rejected. I passed over that because I was still thinking 'terminal'. Also in my xampp, there is no php5 but I tried php.exe and it all worked fine. Again, thanks.
