    But I got a problem on the testing part :(
    When I try to open my php page through localhost explorer wants to download
    the file and open it in dreamwaver!!!
    How can I make in open with the explorer?

    If you can open .html pages through localhost, then you have a web
    server. If it is in fact IIS, there is a download of PHP that includes
    a Windows installer that will automatically configure IIS to work with
    PHP. It should be dead simple, but I cannot speak from experience
    because I run Apache server instead of IIS.

    I don't do that. I run PHP as a CGI instead of an Apache module.

    I set mine up that way because one of the hosts I use does not have
    the GD library set up in their Apache PHP module. If you call PHP as a
    CGI, you do have access to it. I wanted that particular library, so
    that's the way I set up my local server. I honestly don't know how
    much difference it makes, but I know that mine works. :-)

    The difference is the performance. The module is always loaded when
    the server is running, the CGI has to start a new process first, load
    the interpreter and then execute the script. That slows it down a bit.

    Thanks, Michael. I would guess that you're costing a few processor
    cycles on the server but, since the bottleneck it the transfer from
    server to client, the difference will unlikely be noticeable to the
    user. That's provided, of course, that the server isn't terribly
    overloaded already.

    oh wait
    everything works now !!! :)
    YAAY !!!

    THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED ME OUT HERE!!!
    VERY VERY VERY MUCH

    i think i configured it to run a cgi
    but it didnt work so i tried openning the php.exe and it said that iconv.dll
    was missing...
    so i copied it to the php.exe dir and everything works ok now
    i think
    maybe its wrong to it like that but still it seems to work...
    maybe that was the reason for the module not working too...
