Hi,

That is no error message, this is outputted plain text, actually an interrupted / a part of a switch case block:
Code: Select all
[...]something missing[...]
        (".$query);
        logout();
        include (MAIN_PATH."index.php");
        break;
    case "signup":
        include (MAIN_PATH."index.php");
        break;
    }
}else{
    switch($page){
        case "Home":
            include (MAIN_PATH."index.php");
            break;
        default:
            include (MAIN_PATH."index.php");
            break;
    }
}
include (INCLUDE_PATH."footer.inc");
?>

My first questions would be:
  • How do you open the file in your browser?
  • which address does your browsers address bar show at the time you get this output?

following questions:
  • is there an by mistake typed ?> in front of (".$query); in your sourcecode?
  • Which file type does the file have?
  • Are your sure this file is meant to be accessed directly, or does it need another file to include it?
  • Do you use short_open_tag <? instead of the full one <?php

best wishes,

hi, your hints have worked. I have got it, it is using the short tags that caused the problem.

Good news.
So i can mark this thread as solved 8)

I changed the headlines to something more selfspeaking. "using xampp" is far away from being selfspeaking.
