PHP help for newbie

Postby samiur » 07. March 2013 14:08

Hello,
I'm a new XAMPP user. I'm using XAMPP 1.8.1 Today I've created my first php page.

Code: Select all
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<?php
echo "My first PHP script!";
?> 

</body>
</html>


My php file directory is:
http://localhost/mis/samiur.php


When I open it, there is nothing. The page is blank.

I'm a newbie and I don't know where is the problem. Can anyone help me?

Update: Screenshot of the problem.

Hi samiur,

your code should work.
What is the output in your browsers sourcecode view?

best wishes,
Altrea

Seems like php is not processed (which is a very uncommon issue).
Can you access the XAMPP Administration page (http://localhost/xampp/)?

Because the XAMPP Administration page is also written in php, your XAMPP installation seems to be working.
The issue must be in your file. If you are willing to send me the file via email, i would be able to take a look at it!?

Okay, i have analysed your file. In your case it is an encoding issue.
My Notepad++ Code editor identifies the Encoding as "UCS2-2 Little Endian".
Because this is a 2 Byte charset, php doesn't recognise beginning and ending of the php blocks.

You can see the differences in the following image, which is a comparison of your file against a utf8 rewritten version of your file:

I think you had done the mistake in directory files so the xampp 1.8.1 server does not accept the files.some times the RAM speed is slow doing the same problem.It is an server error.
