How to preview php files in windows
Anyone here know any program that I can use to preview php files on my windows without uploading it to a server. Thanks!

Previewing? You can just install a server on your own box: http://www.apache.org/ for example

an easier way of setting up a server to test your own work on would be to get phptriad - it comes with apache/php/mySQL all bundled together - you might need to update the php to most recent version but thats not hard to do

As el-half and val have mentioned, you could install a server on your computer. You'd have to have the PHP interpreter installed with a web browser in order to preview any PHP scripts (or just the PHP interpreter if you're running from the command line). I don't know of any GUI tools that will open a PHP script and preview the results without the script residing on a server, whether it be a local or remote location.

To imrpove slightly on what valhallen said phpdev would be the way to go. It is more up to date. http://www.firepages.com.au/devindex.htm theres the link for it.

I personally run iis, php 4, and mysql on my windows xp dev box. Works fine for me and testing my php scripts.

I actually got it to work finally. I think those bastards at my hosting company throttled my cpu usage. LMAO
They can't handle the power of my graphic php scripts
