Newbie/PHP Page won't load

Postby freedomsks » 08. July 2007 07:08

Thanks for provding this forum to answer questions and learm more about xampp!

Any help would be appreciated with my below described issue.

I just installed XAMPP on win xp. Everything is working and I can view the default pages in http://localhost

I have copied a php script file into the htdocs/xampp directory and then browsed to it at http://localhost/xampp/csv2xml.php.

I just get a blank white page that tries to load but never does. This script converts a csv file into a specially formatted XML file and also generates md5 checksums for mp3 files referenced in the csv data. This is done through an upload form in the php file.

This page and script load fine on my proffessionaly hosted web account I have. Just not loading on xampp. Here's my script. I didn't code it, I've paid somebody to do it. I know very little or next to nothing about scripting.

//Check if the file has been submitted for processing
$target_path = "./";
$target_path = $target_path . basename( $_FILES['uploadedfile']['name']);
if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['uploadedfile']['tmp_name'], $target_path)) {
echo "The file ". basename( $_FILES['uploadedfile']['name']). " has been uploaded<br>\n";
} else{
echo "There was an error uploading the file, please try again!";

$parse_file = "./" . $_FILES['uploadedfile']['name'];
$static_fields = 24;
$row = 1;
$info_array = array();
$track_array = array();
$array_list = array();
$handle = fopen($parse_file, "r");
while (($data = fgetcsv($handle, 1000, ",")) !== FALSE) {
$info_array = array();
$num = count($data);
for ($c=0; $c < $num; $c++) {
//echo $c . " " . $data[$c] . "<br />\n";
if($row > 1){
array_push($info_array, $data[$c]);
array_push($array_list, $info_array);

Try this and check if PHP is installed:
<? phpinfo(): ?>

If it is, the error might be in your PHP script (the script you placed in the xampp dir).
Correct me if I'm wrong!
