I used XAMPP to install PHP, Apache, and MySQL on my home PC to do some php programming. I checked to make certain the services were all running and they are.
Whenever I launch a .php file from http://127.0.0.1/xamp/htdocs/test.php (or http://localhost/xamp/htdocs/test.php) with a browser (FireFox or IE) I get the Open With or Save File pop up window. If I rename the .php as an .html file, I simply get a blank page when I launch it.
I am running Apache 2.2.14 and PHP 5.3.1 with my PC running Windows 5.1 build 2600 (Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3) i586.
I have stopped and restarted Apache, PHP, and MySQL several times since making the AddType change. All to no avail.
I inserted "AddType application/x-httpd-php .php" in the Apache httpd.conf file hoping that would make it work...it didn't help.
What am I doing wrong here?
