    What types of files exactly are you trying to view? Use the PHP editor I recommended yesterday. For SQL, try MySql Front - http://www.mysqlfront.de/

    I'm no apache expert, but I believe it's just a service you can turn on and off. You need to edit the config file to suit your needs. I'm just assuming this is what you're looking for of course, but here's a page with all the relevant documentation - http://httpd.apache.org/

    im trying to view the php pages ive created. but in not getting anything. im not sure if im saving them in the right place or im accessing them wrong. ive tried to access them by double clicking them, but i get no where that way. ive tried to get there by going through the browser, but that isnt working too good either.

    Sounds like it's something with the apache configuration. Wait until Eric comes online, he probably knows more about apache than I do. I never really ran my own pages but I have toyed with apache's http service though.

    What about if you view the pages locally, does it work then?

    Jonney you have to fill me in on a lot of details :

    Are you running a web server or is it being hosted ?

    What are you trying to log into ?

    I have not followed the threads so I am kind of lost as to what exactly you are doing and what point you are at !

    Are you doing this on a Windows machine? If so, it would be a lot easier with the FoxServ installer. It installs the latest versions of Apache, PHP, MySQL, and phpMyAdmin and configures everything automatically.

    http://www.foxserv.net/portal.php

    And be sure your browser is pointed to http://127.0.0.1 if you're running the server on your local machine, because many ISPs and cable companies block port 80 on their customers' PCs.
