To make WebMatrix better, I suggest you ...

show php syntax mistakes !!!!!!!!!

even if a ';' is missing php fails to run. and I cannot find it .
This is because it is not complied .
can you please add a synactic checker ?

        You can ask PHP to show error messages. Go to "c:\Program Files\IIS Express\PHP\v5.3\" (where v5.3 is your current version) and rename "php.ini-development" to "php.ini". The original "php.ini" go to be deleted in fact, you can rescue this before.

        It will show reason of fail and string number in your browser. In Webmatrix you can use "show string numbers" and "go to string".

        Of course, it's better it automatically supports in Webmatrix.
