How do I preview PHP (or eRuby) files using built-in web server?
Built-in web server allows you to avoid setting up full-size web server on your local computer.
To enable the built-in web server:
- On the Options menu, click Preferences.
- Under Preview - Mappings uncheck Use mappings;
- Under Preview - Script Preview check the option Use built-in web server;
- Click Web Server Settings and specify the path to php-cgi.exe file. If you do not have the PHP interpreter on your computer, you must download and install it. Click here to download a self-installing PHP package.
After completing these steps, your computer should be set up and ready to preview the PHP (or eRuby) files using the built-in web server.
