PHP code are shown in the page

Postby danielsega » 10. February 2014 18:44

I installed Xampp and ran a few test and every time i run a page with some PHP content with echo or print it display the code in the browser instead of printing the content.

Here is the code:
<?php
echo "Hello World! <br>";
print "Hello World! <br>";
echo ("Hello World! <br>");
print ("Hello World! <br>");
echo "Hello " . "World!" . "<br>";
print "Hello " . "World!" . "<br>";
echo "Hello ", "World!" , "<br>";
?>

Does your file have a .php or .html file extension?

Then save it as .php file and everything will be okay.

be sure the services Apache and MySql are working and place the file with extension .php on c:\xampp\htdocs , mustly the apache service, the mySQL it sould be for databases

for example if you're file is called test.php and is located on c:\xampp\htdocs\examples\test.php you can call it on a browser like localhost\examples\test.php , good luck!

There is no future reference to make it work as html extension, because

a) this is very a simple question of configuration in httpd.conf

b) it is NOT recommended anyway

Why do you think you need ALL HTML Documents parsed as PHP Documents?
