How do I look at php files?


Sorry to be so new.
....Thanks. I'm using the File Manager in KDE, I think.

If you are using KDE, try using Quanta or Kwrite. To actually run them, you may have to save them somewhere where your webserver can access them.

php files are regular ASCII text files and any editor is capable of viewing them.

i like using Quanta for editing but then they have to go into the /var/www/htdocs directory to view the output. From a browswer just point your browser to localhost and it should pop up. Just remember if you make a directory in htdocs then you would type in the browser localhost/somedirectory

hope that helps

Instead of using the default /var/www/html or /var/www/htdocs, you can also use your ~/public_html directory. If it's not been setup you may have to tinker with the apache configuration file.

Nope. All the PHP processing is done on the server, so the PHP source doesn't get sent to your browser. The only possible way to see it is if the PHP script is posted online somewhere (e.g. it's part of an open source package).
