well i finally got y hands on a copy of tiger...
its nice and all but i seem to have wiped out the php and web server install i enabled on my old panther OS.

I had Panther, and i could preview my php and mysql pages without a problem... then after i installed tiger i realizes that my php paged did not come up right, **** IE. Firefox nore Safari can open any of my php pages..

I get the foloowing error:

Unable to Access URL: "htp://localhost/~este/phptest/w0rd.php"

I can see the apache web server running properly at

I am running Dreamweaver mx2004 and it still will not preview my pages properly, i can see them withn the applicaiton but if i want to preview my pages using IS FireFox, or safariu i get squat!!!

the instrucitons i had go as follows:
on the terminal these are the comments to enter... :
$ cd /etc/httpd
$ sudeo pico httpd.conf

this brings up the pico text editor:
on there i uncommented the following lines:
# LoadModule php4_module libexec/httpd/libphp4.sp
which now lokslike:
LoadModule php4_module libexec/httpd/libphp4.sp

# AddModule mod_php4.c
which now looks like:
AddModule mod_php4.c

i used ctrl-o to save as and hit enter to save.
exit to quit the teminal
command+W closed the terminal

is thei correct? any other ideas as to why my php pages are not wrkign properly?

nevermind i figured out a work around..
it appears everyting is working properly now...

I am able to see the apache webpage so instead of entering http://localhost on dreamweaver when it asks to specify a url to be used when looking at my sites, I replcaed localhost with the ip address of the apache webserver it looks like this:

it works like a charm...

*im sure mostofyou already know that but for a pc user im pretty proud of myself for figuring this out lol

that is not your router ip if you use dsl or cable you must configure your router to allow connection through port 80 and reroute the connections to your computer very simple good luck
