php doesn't work

Postby dsnedeco » 08. June 2011 12:40

Using 1.7.4 on Windows 7, 64-bit and everything seems to be OK in "http://localhost/xampp/" ADMIN tests. However it won't run my index.php. How to I begin to solve this.

Assuming you have a default XAMPP installation in C:\xampp, have you tried this:
Create a folder in C:\xampp\htdocs called myfiles and put your index.php file in this folder.

Now type in your browser:
http://localhost/myfiles/
or
http://localhost/myfiles/index.php

You can also replace the index.php file already in the C:\xampp\htdocs folder with your own index.php, then simply type
http://localhost/
in your browser or
http://localhost/index.php

Let me know back what you see in your browser when you try the above instructions.

Instead of running the php code it just lists it out on the screen. The page works fine when I run it on my remote host site. It just doesn't work on my local machine.

Do you want to show us your sourcecode of that test file?
Maybe it's a short_open_tag issue!?
