I have a network set up on my two xp p.c's.

I have installed Xampp on my p.c, but when I view a php file on the other computer, I do not get any php?

The file I am viewing is on my pc, with xampp installed and running, however the p.c I was viewing it from (through the network) hasnt got Xampp installed.

I would like to be able to view php files on my network, how would this be achieved without installing xampp on any other pc's on my network?

thanks, hope I made this clear!

yeh, let me guess r u using my network places and browseing to the file... if so what u need to do is go to http://the_server_running_wampp(xampp) and that should sho you your content if you can run the php local then it should work across the network. what i think you are doing is double clicking on the file in win explorer and its not working if i am wrong i am wrong if not that should get u started. to sum up you need to open internet explorer and use http://the_server_running_wampp to view your pages. i think u r using \\the_server_running_wampp\path_to_file instead and that will sho the html but not execute the php. oh and just another thing dont forget to start wampp before you begin. if this is confusing sorry, but its free just like wampp, which means u have to work a little. later :idea:
