I downloaded the XAMPP. I have tried to test several simple programs. The HTML code is working fine, but the $_REQUEST is not transferring the inputed data. On the CMD input PHP is also not recognized.
I have used the testfolder in htdocs and embedded the folder with the PHP script inside of the specific named folder. I may have the addresses incorrect, but I was using examples from a book. I am using Windows Vista x64.
Sorry, but this is still relatively new for me. I appreciate any help. This is frustrating.
