File location

Postby Gernicha » 28. October 2010 11:00

Hello everyone,
I'm new to XAMPP and I would like to know where to put all my html/php files.

Is there a www directory?

Also, I would like to know how to get my html onto the localhost. E.G Click this then do that etc.

Thank you in advance,

Gernicha

My PHP files aren't working,
When I try to use them, it either just shows the source code or tries to download it...

Your help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

Are you staarting the pages in your browser by opening them as in http://localhost/myphppage.php ??

Does the http://localhost/xampp/index.php page work?

Are you using php's short_open_tags? <? instead of <?php

if so, you will need to fix that in your php.ini

Well, it's not really a index page, I'm using it as a file uploader. But, when it is ment to redirect to the php file it just displays source...

Thank you for all of your help!

Here's the code (I didn't write it):

HTML (upload.html):

<html>
<body>
<form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="uploader.php" method="POST">
<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="100000" />
Choose a file to upload: <input name="uploadedfile" type="file" /><br />
<input type="submit" value="Upload File" />
</form>
</body>
</html>


PHP (uploader.php):

<?php
$target_path = "uploads/";

$target_path = $target_path . basename( $_FILES['uploadedfile']['name']);

if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['uploadedfile']['tmp_name'], $target_path)) {
echo "The file ". basename( $_FILES['uploadedfile']['name']).
" has been uploaded";
} else{
echo "There was an error uploading the file, please try again!";
}
?>

I will repeat the question:

Do you open the html/php file with the http: protocol?
more clearly: what does the browser address bar tell you, if you open and/or send the html form page?
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

It's like porn for programmers 8)
