Well, I don't know if it's original or not, since I was not actually around at that time. But it was posted in a topic later on and it was claimed to be the banner that was put up. I guess the oddly shaped size of it would attract more attention to it opposed to a standard banner size - more scrolling involved obviously.

I had just gone through my whole graphics folder today and deleted everything worthless. For some odd reason, this happened to remain:

My real name is Alexander and I live in Spokane (pronounced spo-kan), WA. I'm a 16 yr. old high-school senior with school starting up for me in a day (tomorrow, actually, blergh). I'm a webmaster/designer programming mainly in PHP, though I do a bit of C++ on the side occasionally. I'm the ASB treasurer of my school for this year, I can't drive by myself yet because of a stupid 6-month permit law, and I can't think of anything else random.

Yeah, and my pic is in my profile, wear protective gear, I'm wearing a pink necklace thingy, forgot what it was called.

Anytime you edit the httpd.conf file, you must restart your server. To do that, simply click on the Apache icon in the taskbar (left, not right) and click restart. Also, if that doesn't work, add the trailing slash as suggested at the PHP site. Also, make sure your php.ini file is in the proper directory.

It would really help you if you went and turned file extensions on (Control Panel -> Folder Options -> View -> and uncheck "Hide Extensions for known filetypes"). Then you'll see that the httpd has suddenly become httpd.conf. Edit that file and insert the needed information. In this case, you would put in:

# For PHP 5 do something like this:
LoadModule php5_module "c:/php/php5apache2.dll"
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

# configure the path to php.ini
PHPIniDir "C:/php"
You can put that anywhere in the file.

No, it means you need to change the settings in Notepad to save as "All File Types" instead of just a text file. You should see a pulldown menu with those options when you save the file using "Save As". Alternatively, you could just rename the file by deleting the last part of the file name (.txt).

I'd recommend getting Crimson Editor to use as a PHP editor, though, instead of Notepad (Dreamweaver is nice, too, but it's quite expensive).

@Kakaka - Let me guess, Microsoft ASP/ASP.NET?

You can directly edit PHP documents with any text editor on your hard drive, but in order to run them, you have to send the PHP script through the server (in this case, that would be Apache). Put the script in the htdocs directory, point your browser to http://localhost/<file_name>.php (or http://127.0.0.1/<file_name>.php). And no, you don't have to be connected to the internet to run the scripts through Apache, you just have to have eveything set up correctly.

For example, you can put this into a text file and rename it to test.php:
<?php
// This text should not be visible
phpinfo();
?>
Then put this file into c:\Program Files\<Apache Directory>\htdocs

Next, open up a browser and type in localhost/test.php. If you see the source, then PHP has not been properly configured. If you see an error or 404 message, Apache hasn't been set up correctly (or is using a port besides 80, in which case, use localhost:<port_number>/test.php). If you see the PHP Info, then everything has been set up and all's good.

Edit: Also, if you're running these scripts offline, I've found it better to use a browser like firefox which won't give you annoying "You're working offline" messages every time you try to load a page.

Firstly, install Apache. Here's a guide that'll help you out (I assume you're using windows):
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/platform/windows.html

Then get PHP installed:
http://us2.php.net/manual/en/install.windows.apache2.php

Then MySQL (which should be one of the easier things to install):
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/windows-installation.html

That should pretty much cover it all, but you still might run into a few minor conflicts, it happens.

You don't really have to install Apache as a server to use PHP, but it kinda works best on it. I personally use IIS since it's already installed on my comp.

As for getting started with PHP, buy a book, it really does help. And the upside to getting a book is that you don't have to stare at a bright computer screen while learning the language. Another thing that might help is looking at already existing scripts, take them apart, see how the script works and what techniques are used, etc. I personally learned PHP by looking through the Invision Powered Board source code (when it was free).

The last suggestion I'd give is if you want to look up what a certain function does, the easiest way is to go to www.php.net/<insert_function_name>. Take note of the user comments posted on the page as well, as they do have various goodies and timesavers.

Interesting question, and even more interesting was the fact that I had just read about it on a "random useless facts" page yesterday.
