This section contains notes specific to the ActiveScript installation.
ActiveScript is a Windows only SAPI that enables you to use PHP script in
any ActiveScript compliant host, like Windows Script Host, ASP/ASP.NET,
Windows Script Components or Microsoft Scriptlet control.
As of PHP 5.0.1, ActiveScript has been moved to the » PECL repository.
The DLL for this PECL extension
may be downloaded from either the
» PHP Downloads page or from
You should read the manual
installation steps first!
After installing PHP, you should download the ActiveScript DLL
(php5activescript.dll) and place it in the main PHP
folder (e.g. C:\php).
After having all the files needed, you must register the DLL on your
system. To achieve this, open a Command Prompt window (located in the
Start Menu). Then go to your PHP directory by typing something like
cd C:\php. To register the DLL just type
To test if ActiveScript is working, create a new file, named
test.wsf (the extension is very important) and type:
Save and double-click on the file. If you receive a little window saying
"Hello World!" you're done.
In PHP 4, the engine was named 'ActivePHP', so if you are using PHP 4,
you should replace 'PHPScript' with 'ActivePHP' in the above example.
ActiveScript doesn't use the default php.ini file. Instead, it will
look only in the same directory as the .exe that caused it to load. You
should create php-activescript.ini and place it in
that folder, if you wish to load extensions, etc.
