tried dropping the WiPHA folder in the Webserver directory
This should be enough for it to work. The basic step by step would be:
- run the installer (it need to find a Sites folder in your home directory)
- move the wipha folder where you want
- open your browser, and do what you want to reach wipha/index.php where you stored it
The standard install aborts before finishing
You need to be more precise about what happens here if you want to get a useful answer. The installer displays a log on all ongoing actions. Where does it stop ? Error message ?
get the photo directory linked to the apache directory
This isn't necessary anymore: once wipha is installed, the libraries are set in the admin part of the site.
