I second that notion, and yes, it is OS independant, php has plug-in files for all sorts of web servers i think even macOS.
If I seem rude to you, you most likely deserved it, for I have no patience for dumb people and their pointless, stupid questions.

It is possible to write php which will error on win and work on unix. That's why I said should.
Don't give me my freedom out of pity!

And vice versa, but still nice general features and a nice environment for most common and popular OS's...

Different OS's have different implementations of php and different initial .ini settings - so a "vanilla" os install in some operating systems might support phpbb whilst others do not - usually a small bit of tweaking files fixes this on systems but that explains the discrepancies. Also, from what I remember (which is admittedly a scary concept) different xp patches change around settings for web services, so what works fine in one set may not work post-patch.

Although if you're using an XP webserver you're asking for it anyways, but that's just personal opinion.

However - if you're not able to work that stuff out on your own well enough to get the CVS to install, you've really got no business playing with it.
