Where do you find php-cgi.exe for Microsoft Web Expressions 4?

Posted 15 June 2012 - 06:19 PM

Hello and thank you in advance for the help,


I'm trying to preview some php scripts web expressions 4. I've never programmed in php so please bear with me. I've installed php version 5.4.4 from php.net and placed it in a folder called C:/Program Files/PHP. When I go into to "Site Settings" in Web Expressions I'm unable to find php-cgi.exe. I'm able to preview without an error message however all I get is a blank screen. I'm trying to preview a simple "Hello World" script that I've copied and pasted. I've saved the doc extension as .php. Where could I be going wrong? Thanks again!

The most likely reason for your issue is that PHP is a server-side language. It will not work on a client. You'll need to setup a server (or purchase hosted server space) in order to run PHP scripts.
