I realize this is a noob question, anyway:
I have tried to modify this (http://css-tricks.com/examples/NiceSimpleContactForm/index.php) contact form to work locally.
I have put all the files into my htdocs folder.
Now, when I push the submit button (start the php script) my browser wants to download the php file instead of running it like it should.
I have read a similar thread (http://playworkplay.com/blog/browser-trying-to-download-php-file-instead-of-executing-it-in-xampp-try-to-clean-cache/) where the solution was to clean the browser cache. This did not solve it for me though.
By the way, phpinfo() works fine on the http://localhost/xampp page.
I have also tried to put the files in the htdocs/xampp folder (where all the xampp files are located), but the same thing happens.
EDIT: When I upload the files to my web hotel, it works - but it would be nice to get it to work locally too though..
Has anyone got any ideas on this?
