In reference to your response to Bug Report #34083
PHP Manual: Errors, Inconsistencies, and Omissions

I think I have gone through the PHP manual thoroughly but still can't get PHP5 to work with Personal Web Server 4.  This is Part 3 of my bug report and I would appreciate a response.


Omissions in Documentation

Once PHP is installed with Personal Web Server 4 (under Windows 98), when the folder c:\PHP is right clicked to get PHP properties, there is a Web Sharing tab that states "Microsoft Personal Web Server is started".   The Share this Folder Option is selected and /Php appears under Aliases.

However, trying to execute a simple script like hello.php results in an HTTP 404 File not found condition.  In addition, the equivalent in hello.asp will also result in this error.  You can only run an asp program under Personal Web Server by selecting Do Not Share this Folder. However, an Error dialogue box will appear that asks:

"Disable web sharing of this folder?  This action will delete all the aliases for this item."

which then results in this error message when trying to run hello.php under Personal Web Server:

HTTP Error 403
403.1 Forbidden: Execute Access Forbidden 
This error can be caused if you are trying to execute a CGI, ISAPI, or other executable program from a directory that does not allow programs to be executed.

The PHP documentation does not address these problems with Personal Web Server.  You need to discuss whether it is possible to run both PHP and ASP under Personal Web Server and how this can be done without getting a file not found condition.

So what is missing in the docs about this? Providing a clear patch to fix them would be nice..

(URL to the manual page would help too)
