I am new to XAMPP and web programming.
I installed XAMPP 1.7.7 on Windows 7.
On the status page, MySQL, PHP, HTTPS (SSL), CGI and SSI are all activated.
I tried my first PHP script, the easiest, by writing this code
<title>My First PHP Page</title>
<?php print('Hello world'); ?>
I opened the script file in Firefox 8.01 but PHP is not interpreted. I get a blank page (though, with the right header "My First PHP Page").
Thanks for any help, Ivo
