Default php mysql server for xmlsocket

i want to use xmlsocket to link to php to mysql, to create a multiplayer game.
however, i do not know how to create the php server and could not find any tutorials on how to do so.
free php servers were also limited on the web.
Does anyone here know where to get or how to make a php server connecting to mysql?
i roughly know how to connect through loadvars to php but it was too slow in speed-crucial multiplayer games.
also, if you have some alternative ways instead, could you post them here too?
Yohohoho... Yohohoho.

Your XMLSocket must run above port 1024 this is mandatory and built into flash leaving port 80 not available. So if you are not on a dedciated machine, and relying on a shared host, chances are you won't be able to connect over sockets.

If this is not an issue. There is a product named patServer available at http://www.php-tools.de Its a pure PHP socket server. I have built some multiuser apps with it. Its pretty cool.

Check it out. For true realtime multiplayer sockets are a must.
