This the most commonly used error that occurs with the command prompt. As the error itself suggests that it could not recognize the tool you are trying to use with the command prompt.

Reasons for this error:

  • One of the most common reasons that your PC has installed another app that modified tour system variables.
  • The second reason is that you don’t have installed an appropriate program on your computer.

Fixing error in windows:

You can fix your error by using any of the following methods.

  • For solving this error, first, ensure that the program actually exists on your PC. Sometimes you may have a fake installer that told that the program was successfully installed on your computer, but actually it is not.
  • Use the full path to the executable files and it should be able to run it without any issues.
  • Enclose the file path with double-quotes. If the executable file contains many spaces, then it is going to cause an error.
  • Copy executable file along with all other associated files to the folder System32 on your computer.
  • Add all executable files to the environment variable. By adding files there you can tell the command prompt where a certain file is located and you can use it by its short name in CMD window.

'php' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program ... don’t know what’s wrong because I followed the tutorial on how to install WAMP.
