Javascript Problem

Postby davebritton » 23. September 2006 21:21

I have installed XAMPP and everything is running fine, MYSQL and I have published the page I am developing in HTDOCS. I have written some function s in javascript written to a file functions.js when my PHP Calls these functions it attempts to open the file javascript.js rather than run the functions. Is there something I have to setup on XAMPP to run server side javascripts. Any help would be appreciated or any links to info on setting this up

To ensure it is not just my code that does not work I have copied other example .js files and they attempt to load rather than run too.

Many Thanks

Dave

What are "server side javascripts"?

Javascript is a client side scripting language and not a server side scripting language.

Maybe i missunderstand something? Can you explain more detailed what are you doing?

I am developing a web site. I have php, html and javascript files saved in xampp, htdocs. The PHP and HTML work fine. When the javascript function functions.js are called from php or html a popup message appears asking if I want to save or open the file functions.js

I hope this helps !

When the javascript function functions.js are called from php ...

You can't call JS functions from PHP (PHP is on server side, and JS is on client side) ...

When the javascript function functions.js are called from ... html

Now you are talking about external JS script files, which you are include in your HTML with something like
Code: Select all
<script src="foo.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

?
