Hi everyone,

i'm trying to put a guestbook on my site, it seems that most people on here use the 2.31 version. I'm wondering what i need with regards to php to host the guestbook on my site??? Also is a php driven guestbook easier to maintain than a perl one, as i had big problems with the 1.5 perl version.

The language the guestbook is written in is irrelevant as to how easy it is to maintain. That is all down to how well it is written. Advanced guestbook 2.3.1 is very easy to maintain and to configure.

You need to have both PHP and atleast 1 MySQL database.

Mozilla is a web browser not a server. If you want to host yourself and are using windows I recommend http://www.firepages.com.au/ as it is a single download and installation that includes Apache web server, PHP and MySQL.
