Installing PHP Interpreter

Download the Windows binary for the latest version of PHP. Once you've downloaded it, unzip it into a C:\ directory and rename the folder to "php".
Open the PHP.INI-DIST file from C:\PHP folder, locate the following line:
;cgi.force_redirect = 1
We need to uncomment this line and change the setting to 0, as shown below, to run PHP under BadBlue, do the necessary changes and save the file as php.ini in your windows folder (C:\windows on my computer).
cgi.force_redirect = 0

Configuring BadBlue for PHP

Open your favorite browser, in the Address area type http://localhost/ to open the BadBlue welcome page, click on hyperlink 'Help' from the options available below the BadBlue logo in the browser. You can also type in the address type 'http://localhost/help.htm' to open that page. (let me show you a snapshot of this screen).
