    Check you are showing hidden files. Open My Computer and go to Tools > Folder options > View and make sure 'Show hidden files and folders' is on


    After that, you could upgrade to PHP 4.3.2

    To install:

    - Unzip and copy it somewhere
    - Copy php4ts.dll, everything in the dlls folder and php.ini-recommended to your system folder
    - Rename php.ini-recommended to php.ini
    - Edit php.ini as desired
    - Remove any lines relating to PHP from your httpd.conf
    - Add the following lines to your htpd.conf:

    LoadModule php4_module c:/path/to/php/sapi/php4apache.dll
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
    AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

    - Restart Apache

        Glad it worked. Just spotted one mistake though! php.ini should be in your Windows directory

        As for senility, anything's possible

          hehe Actually not sure if it was my subconcious or something, but that's what I did!! hehe

          Seems to have helped the loading time of pages as well?
          Is that possible?

            Definitely! When you use the exe it (and all the extensions and everything) has to be loaded every time a PHP script runs, which is hugely inefficient. When you use the module everything's loaded when Apache starts and used every time a PHP script runs, which is nice and efficient. You shouldn't install it any other way! Now how have you got MySQL installed?

              Cool! My members seem happier too! (though they didn't mind too much it does help!! LOL) Especially the dial ups! *eek*

              As for Mysql ... ummm it's an .exe as well! hehe
              Heck when I started out I did it for fun with free forums just because I could. So I used the then free, phptriad which installed EVERYTHING as an exe ... since then I've just done upgrades as needed.

              Hopefully soon I'll be able to upgrade both the box AND the software. Using the server as my everyday "surf the web/misc" machine doesn't help either!! LOL

                  I don't see why it can't run on a Windows NT server. I can list the archive fine. The only problem is that vBulletin adds a / after the url wich makes it not work. Why can't I just edit it so that it lists the proper url?
