I'm back after a long hiatus (illness) and I'm having problems getting PHP to run locally. I have code that works on my remote server, but I can't run it locally. I started with V1.8.1 but then found something that said I need to stick with VC6 compilers so I went back to 1.7.3 and installed it.
I know to use "localhost" and put the scripts in htdocs, which I've done. What displays looks like a cross between HTML and PHP, but it's sure not PHP in reality.
Are there changes I need to make in a *.ini or a config file I need to set up? If so, how & where? I've studied the docs and see no hints there. Back on XP I recall installing it and going right to work, but it's sure not working that way on my win 7.
I get no error messages or anything and have entered passwords where it wanted them. The XAMPP success, welcome, status, etc., page works fine and show no errors but I can't get it to use my own scripts.
If I'm not
concise enough, don't hesitate to ask me for clarification or whatever I've left out.
TIA for any advice, comments, etc. that might help.
