PHP not being executed within INCLUDE function

Postby SEOCoder » 09. April 2010 12:25

Hi all,

I have just set up on a new computer running Windows 7. I have downloaded and installed XAMPP 1.7.3. The issue that has arisen is that the INCLUDE function is working, it is including the content of the external files, but it is not executing the PHP scripts located within the external files.

The files used are fine, this works on other machines and has been running on websites on several different servers for months. Does anyone know what is causing this problem on my machine, is it a compatibility or a configuration issue.

I really need to fix this urgently, any help is greatly appreciated.

Why don't you post us your include line (and the lines around) and your included file?
Without code it's very difficult to analyse what's going wrong.

Do you use short open tags?

I have the same problem. It's just a simply code, but it doesn't works.

Include:

<?php
include("dosomething.php");
do_something();
?>

====================================================================
External file: (called "dosomething.php" - In the same path directory)
<?php
function do_something(){
echo "I'm doing something";
}
?>

====================================================================

If anyone can tell me why it doesn't work i'll be very thankfull

I have a simple test to confirm a suspicion I have.

Try moving one of those includes that will not execute so the source is inside the Program Files hierarchy.

If it executes correctly, then its a Windows script execution issue.

can't hurt.
