    New PHP install confusion


    I am confused about which version of PHP I can use on my new computer.
    Here is why:

    I was told that I could not use MSVC9 packages on my system so I found
    the most recent MSVC6 ZIP package and got that running.

    Then I went to the xdebug TAILORED INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS site to
    find out which xdebug program I could use and after placing the
    information they requested I received this message:


    TAILORED INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
    SUMMARY
    Xdebug installed: no
    Server API: Apache 2.0 Handler
    Windows: yes - Compiler: MS VC6 - Architecture: x86
    Zend Server: no
    PHP Version: 5.2.17
    Zend API nr: 220060519
    PHP API nr: 20060613
    Debug Build: no
    Thread Safe Build: yes
    Configuration File Path: C:\windows
    Configuration File: C:\php\php.ini
    Extensions directory: c:\php\ext

    THE COMPILER (MS VC6) THAT THIS PHP WAS BUILD WITH, IS NO LONGER
    SUPPORTED. PLEASE UPGRADE TO A VERSION THAT WAS BUILT WITH MS VC9.



    I am running Windows 8.
    My server is:
    Server version: Apache/2.2.22 (Win32)
    Server built: Jan 28 2012 11:16:39

    So my questions is what is the most recent Tread Safe Build zip package
    of PHP that I can use on this system?

    Thanks!

    Try here. And read this.

    You need a different version of Apache, rather than (or in addition to) PHP. Or use Microsoft's Web Platform.

    Or, another option which many go with, but I don't favor, are some of the all-in-one packages. i.e. LAMP, XAMP, WAMP, ...
