If I understand your question correctly, you are asking why you need to
upload your php scripts to a server and why can't you see the result on your
workstation without the upload?

Easy.  PHP is a server driven interpreter.  You must have the PHP
executables installed either on the server or your local workstation.  If
you go http:\\www.php.net, you will find a win32 installation section.  You
will also need to have Personal Web Server installed on your workstation.
Internet Explorer is not setup to run php by itself.  It needs a webserver
to do it.

If you don't want to use Micrsofts Personal Web Server, you can download the
win32 version of Apache at www.apache.org.

Got a major problem with seeing the result of my php scripts without
uploading them to a server. I don't have a server myself. Do I need to have
one or can I see my writen scripts and see the results directly in my
internet explorer?
