The Apache and PHP files' versions in the book don't exist anymore and the current doesn't work on my W7.

Any idea?

You can install everything you need in one package. Two of the more popular options:

XAMPP: http://www.apachefri...g/en/xampp.html
note this: http://www.apachefri...hp?f=16&t=50616

WAMP: http://www.wampserver.com/en/


my vote is for wamp!

Thank you. I don't know perl and don't have linux so I installed the wamp package but when i click the desktop icon the window below pop-up.

It says something like that: "procedure entry point missed in the dynamic library"

I think I broke my W7 installing and uninstalling microsoft server versions, old apaches and phps.

I can't read what that says and I'm not sure what you did so it really hard to know what to tell you to fix. Sorry

Finally my nightmare has finished.

After days of research I found a solution: I replaced the Apache server with a Microsoft free server.

Using Microsoft Web Platform Installer 3.0 I successfully installed Webmatrix Server. It's easy to use and connect to MySQL by clicking on the icon "add connection".

I hope this help other people with this W7 problem.

And thank You again lemuel and drewdin.
