Manual Configuration instructions
If you would like to configure BadBlue for PHP manually, open the ext.ini file (usually in the directory c:\program files\badblue\pe) and add the following lines
[SERVICES]
extension1=php,c:\php\php.exe
extension2=php3,c:\php\php.exe
extension3=php4,c:\php\php.exe
Note: Make sure that the path to PHP.EXE is correct and don't forget to save the file.
Restart the BadBlue server to reflect the changes.

Open the browser, in the Address area type the http://localhost/ to open the BadBlue welcome page, click on hyperlink 'Help' from the options available below the BadBlue logo in the browser. In the help Screen go to the Developer support section and click on the hyperlink 'Test PHP support', which shall open the Test PHP Support window, if PHP is correctly installed and configured, you should see today's date and time displayed in that browser window. You can also type http://localhost/testphp.php in the address to open that test page.
Test PHP Support
Alternately you could open your favorite text editor and create a text file and type the following in it.

<?php
   phpinfo
();
?>
phpinfo() is a PHP function which outputs a large amount of information about the current state of PHP. This includes information about PHP compilation options and extensions, the PHP version, server information and environment, the PHP environment, OS version information, paths, master and local values of configuration options, HTTP headers, and the PHP License.
Save this file as test.php in C:\Program Files\BadBlue\PE\ (your default BadBlue Web Root Folder)
Open you browser and type http://localhost/test.php in the address bar, click Go to see if you see output like the screen below to make sure PHP in configured and running properly.
PHP Info Page
If the source code appears in the browser and not the output we are expecting, then PHP has not been properly installed or BadBlue does not recognizes PHP files, please make sure you have followed the instructions properly.
