  1. I need to be able to run php scripts on my computer is there any way I can do that without a web host. I tried downloading apache but it won't work on my computer for some reason. Says can't verify host or something.
  2. Ah dude, you are much better off finding a free host which allows PHP.

    Or use this on your PC if you just want a local server (I don't recommend if you plan on starting a real website, firewalls are tricky)

    apache friends - xampp
  3. No not a real website yet but I want to practice php and the free host I am using sucks.
  4. Just set up a webserver on your computer and run all your testing locally off it. (100% free)
  5. Thanks guys that xampp has been working great I have been running my scripts a lot easier than before. I am developing an online game using PHP and MySQL. I am working on the battle system while still learning PHP it gets's pretty tough sometimes, lol it took me forever to understand loops. I am just looking at online tutorials which a lot of them aren't that helpful.
