Php code is not being executed. My config:

 

WinXP

P5 2Gb/500Gb

XAMPP (latest DL) -- also tried with WAMPSERVER (latest DL)

Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari (all current)

 

 

HTML renders, but php is skipped.

 

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
       "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
       <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;
       charset utf-0" />
       <title>SESSIONS TUTORIAL</title>
</head>
<body>
<h2>This displays correctly</h2>
<br>
<p>
<?php
echo "This does not display" ;
?>
</p>

</body>
</html>

 

I have tried:

- switching from WAMP to XAMPP and back

- reinstall each of the above (just the "out of box" config, but ensured Apache is running)

- full reimage/restore of C:, then reinstall each of the above

- tried in all browsers

- <?php ... ?> (using long tags)

- with / without semi-colon after echo statement

 

I'm new to PHP and to programming, so I'm probably missing something embarrassingly basic. Either in the code, or in my WAMP setup.

 

Au secours?

Thanks for the speedy reply.

 

Yes to all of your questions.

 

EXCEPT... as I'm thinking about it... the third one.

 

I was entering this address into the address bar:

 

file:///c:/xampp/htdocs/killerphp/index.php

 

-- which *is* on my localhost... but your reply got me thinking... Typing http://localhost/killerphp/index.php worked.

 

Embarrassingly basic. Thanks for the brain nudge.
