install on localhost
#1
Hi I'm having trouble. I have looked through the documentation and fourms and have not found a solution.

I have a Windows 7 machine with an Apache2 server.

The server works fine when I goto localhost in my web browser I get my index.html page as expected.

but when I goto localhost/formtools I get a list of the files that are in that directory. Also, I have stopped and restared the server just in case that was it and I get the same list.

I will add that I have not installed php or mySQL on this machine. Maybe thats the problem.

To elaborate. I have inherited formtools from my predicessor and have no idea how to use them. I'm suposed to be running this site: http://vdfp.us/ and it uses formtools. I have been looking for a tutorial for complete beginners on this tool but everything seems to start 2 steps ahead of where I am.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks,
Diana

Hi Diana,

You will definitely need PHP and MySQL installed on your machine to run Form Tools. Here are the system requirements for Form Tools: http://docs.formtools.org/userdoc/?page=...quirements

Here's a good place to start on learning Form Tools: http://docs.formtools.org/userdoc/?page=...tools_does

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
