Is there a way to set some environment variables on my home computer so my script can tell whether or not they're running on my test machine at home or on the server. At home I'm using Win98SE, Apache 1.3, PHP 4.3. Thanks.

I'm not 100% certain, but if you add a
set isTestmachine="shu" into your autoexec.bat (and rebootet),
you should be able to access that with isset($_ENV['isTestmachine']).
Otherwise, you could also write a function that compared the current IP to the one of your development machine...
function isTestMachine()
return ($_SERVER['HOST_IP'] == '192.213.334.something');

so long,
