First let me say XAMPP is a great piece of work I've been using it for years now without any problem
I'm the creator of y0ursource a new bit torrent tracker script/client/nzb/File hosting/ etc...
so I've been using XAMPP with my project everything has been great until 1.7.2
it seems 1.7.2 doesn't see PHP for php and outputs it as text below is 2 screen shots to show you
exactly what i mean the 2 screen shots below that is the exact same script but running 1.7.1 (the best version ever) new 1.7.2 running y0ursource on XAMPP look at the mess it has when it hits the PHPhttp://img683.imageshack.us/img683/6272/proof1.jpgAgain below another screen running same script index.php with 1.7.2http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/3463/proof2a.jpgBelow is what the 2 images above should look like this was done with 1.7.1http://img691.imageshack.us/img691/6246/ysproof1.jpgAgain another 1.7.1 this is what the second screen should look like http://img691.imageshack.us/img691/8650/ysproof2.jpg
Same scripts nothing changed except installed 1.7.2 got the mess as you see above then un-installed
and installed 1.7.1 and boom everything working perfectly
i have to say I've never come across a bad build of XAMPP but this 1.7.2 is the worst thing I've ever come across
you've took 1.7.1 which was perfect in every single way and totally destroyed it by making a 1.7.2 which clearly cannot
handle PHP in fact it can hardly handle any PHP software i really think this MAJOR bug should be fixed ASAP because as it
stands XAMPP 1.7.2 is useless for anyone who needs anything more than a virtual host with a bit of HTML.
hope I've brought this situation to light pretty quickly
