php script file not executed - generates pop-up open save...

Postby david0705 » 30. October 2007 21:56

Dear Apache experts,

Please help me if you can...! :)

My system: laptop / Vista home premium.
I have recently installed XAMPP (windows installer), and after some struggle with ports (Skype referred to port 80 as alternative) and the Vista "blockers" (that I turned off) finally everything functiones, only one single problem drives me mad... :(

Apache is running fine, no errors, nothing in the error.log, localhost functions perfectly (it seems), all files of my web project operate fine (are placed in the htdocs folder, of course), except that when a SUBMIT button (within a HTML page) is supposed to post form data (method="post" action="filename.php") to be saved, the respective PHP file script is not executed, instead I constantly get the windows pop-up "open/save/cancel".

It functions perfectly on a web server, so there's no programming errors involved...

Your ideas and advice will be highly appreciated!!! :)

I run the index.html file, a menu offers the form page, I cklick the form page, fill in the fields, klick the "submit" button - and there it is, the ugly pop-up file-save-open-cancel window... 8)

All pages are HTML 4.01 Transitional, calling php files for some functions. Btw., php script as such functions, if I include it in the html page...

Thanks for your fast reply! :)

I run the index.html file

How?

(e.g. you talk to your computer to open this file?)

:) nope, I wish I could... :D

I doublecklick the index file, which is located in the root directory, which again is a sub-directory of xampp's htdocs. It opens in Windows IE, latest version.

I doublecklick the index file

That's not working. You must open this file with "http://" in your webbrowser.
