Elizabeth Smith's Blog:
Setting up PhD on Windows
February 23, 2009 @ 08:45:23

In this new post to her blog Elizabeth Smith takes a look at something easy you can do to help out the PHP project without ever writing a line of C code - helping the Documentation project. How, you ask? Well, if you're working with Windows, this is your lucky day. Elizabeth uses the rest of the post to show you how to install PHP, grab the phpdoc XML files from CVS and get PhD up and running.

So, you've decided you want to help out - where do you start? Before you can edit a file or document an extension you need to be able to build the manual to check your changes. So you need a working install of PhD. In order to accomplish this goal you'll need three things installed and configured, which is what this article is intended to help with.

You might need to grab a few other things (like the Microsoft 2008 C++ runtime or a QA build of PHP 5.3) to get things running, but her guide - complete with screenshots - walks you through every step of the way. For those that are a bit more experienced with working with Windows & PHP, you might find the five minute install a bit faster.
