Dear php 

i'm a new user to your great program and want to learn more about it, but i have a serious problem:

i have setup php v.4.3.0 after installing mysql nad xitami server.

then i put some php script in xitami testin folder (webpages). now when i try to run any php page under xitami webpages folder i have this message:

(Security Alert! The PHP CGI cannot be accessed directly. 
This PHP CGI binary was compiled with force-cgi-redirect enabled. This means that a page will only be served up if the REDIRECT_STATUS CGI variable is set, e.g. via an Apache Action directive.

For more information as to why this behaviour exists, see the manual page for CGI security.

For more information about changing this behaviour or re-enabling this webserver, consult the installation file that came with this distribution, or visit the manual page.)

when i saw that i tried to disable this option from php.ini from windows folder but the result is the same as i enable it.

now i can't work with my site project, please show me a step by step to make the php code work, also irealized that php.ini file required variables, what are these variables? can u name it for me with it's values and where to place it

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a

appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
