Setting Up Local Testing for PHP [Solved]

Postby Richard85 » 10. August 2012 19:30

Hello All,

I just installed XAMPP version 1.8 along with control panel 3.0.12 so I can start testing PHP scripts on my PC. The problem is when I try clicking on the files they don't work properly. I downloaded some PHP scripts and uploaded one to my website.

The first image is a screenshot of what happens when I open the file which is uploaded to my website, the second screenshot is what happens when I open the SAME file directly from my computer... Keep in mind I installed the Microsoft C++ pack and I have the files in the xampp/htdocs directory. Thanks!!

You can't open the PHP file directly in your browser. Try http://localhost/sources/register.php instead.
