Hello People! I am still struggling to get PHP up and running. I have used
Installshield and all the defaults suggested. I am using Dreamweaver which
in turn uses IIS at LocalHost. I use the suggested code :-
Running under win2000 and IIS.
<title>PHP Test 3</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">
<?php echo "Hello World<p>"; ?>

I receive the following error :-

"Security Alert! The PHP CGI cannot be accessed directly.
This PHP CGI binary was compiled with force-cgi-redirect enabled. This means
that a page will only be served up if the REDIRECT_STATUS CGI variable is
set, e.g. via an Apache Action directive."

I went to my PHP.INI file (Despite the InstallShield saying I needn't) and
this is what I found:-

; The root of the PHP pages, used only if nonempty.
; if PHP was not compiled with FORCE_REDIRECT, you SHOULD set doc_root
; if you are running php as a CGI under any web server (other than IIS)
; see documentation for security issues.  The alternate is to use the
; cgi.force_redirect configuration below
doc_root =

; The directory under which PHP opens the script using /~usernamem used only
; if nonempty.
user_dir =

; Directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside.
extension_dir = ./

; Whether or not to enable the dl() function.  The dl() function does NOT

; properly in multithreaded servers, such as IIS or Zeus, and is

; disabled on them.
enable_dl = On

; cgi.force_redirect is necessary to provide security running PHP as a CGI

; most web servers.  Left undefined, PHP turns this on by default.  You can
; turn it off here AT YOUR OWN RISK
; **You CAN safely turn this off for IIS, in fact, you MUST.**
; cgi.force_redirect = 1
cgi.force_redirect = 0

As we can see I MUST turn cgi.force_redirect to off and indeed it is. I
therefore don't understand the security alert.

The doc_root =  is as InstallShield installed it. I have tried  C:/PHP with
no change in results.

Could someone please explain what I am doing wrong and suggest a solution.

Many thanks Bob G.
