I'm pretty new to PHP, Apache and the like... however, I'm using the SAMS PHP, Apache and MySQL book to try my hand. When using
form action="listing9.2.php" method="POST"
to allow simple html form to send info, upon clicking SEND , instead of going to the relevant display on the php page, it is completely blank. Nothing at all. I cannot find any error messages or anything. I've copied and pasted the code from the CD, removing the line numbers and keeping the html angle brackets, so cannot be a typo. I've also tried various other , similar scripts, all result in a blank display on the php page.
The only clue I think I have is that in the STATUS section of XAMPP it says SMTP service is disabled... could this be the culprit, or is it some setting deep inside Apache HTTPD or the PHP.INI ?
Any help / ideas most gratefully appreciated.
p.s other php scripts not relating to html input forms,etc, work fine.
