I'm new to phpPgAdmin and I have some very simple questions. (If there is a
tutorial where all these questions are already answered, then I would really
appreciate if somebody could send me the link to that tutorial.)

1. I am running PostgreSQL ( on Cygwin (1.5.10-3) on my machine
which is running Windows 98 SE. Do I install phpPgAdmin in Cygwin (Linux
emulation program) or in Windows? If I have to install it in Cygwin, then
which directory folder do I place all the installation files? Is it 'bin',
'etc', 'home', 'lib', 'tmp', 'usr' or 'var' or do I create my own directory
to place the files?

2. For phpPgAdmin to work with PostgreSQL ( on Cygwin (1.5.10-3),
does it require PHP installed in Cygwin as well? And if so, which directory
folder do the PHP installation files go in?

3. For phpPgAdmin to work properly, the 'php.ini' usually goes in the OS
directory (i.e. Windows). Which directory does the 'php.ini' file go in

As I said before, I'm a newbie to phpPgAdmin and PostgreSQL and some
questions I'm asking may not make any sense or may be irrelevant.

Any help will be warmly welcomed!!!!
