Hi,
I must ask the obvious. Did you install PHP on your machine?
If yes, then, do you have a web server running on your box?
if yes, then, try this: make a file called info.php in the root dir
of your web server. the contents of the file should be as follows:

<?
phpinfo();
?>

go to this file with your web browser, if you see a page with lots of info
about your php installation, then you know that php is installed
correctly on your machine.

let me know the results.

php info

Hello
and thanks for your answers . this forum never fails !

I tried the php info test page and I get no result !
There is something wrong but what ?
how come phpMyAdmin works correctly as well as php nuke or coppermine photo gallery.?
all my php aplications seem to work apart from the ones i did myself.
I know httpd and mysqld are running but what about php.

about my instalation .
RH 8

php was selected at the install and i afterwards downlowded and installed
php-mysql-4.3.2-alt0.cvs20030405.i586.rpm

Without this phpMyAdmin does not run
something to do with the mysql.so file......

OK I just realised !!!
I checked the phpinfo in phpMyAdmin and It works

It Statesthat I have PHP4.2.2
Funny the rpm I installed says 4.3.2

Itsalso says that
Virtual Directory is disabled
as well as thread safety

could this be it

Ill just recap here .

I have a page called index.php
sitting at
/var/www/html

with this code;

<html>
<head>
<title>php info test</title>
</head>
<body>
<center><b>php info test</b></center>
<br>

<? phpinfo(); ?>
</body>
</html>


ONLINE it works perfect !!
but locally
It gives no reading at all no info, no error messages!

One would say that PHP is not installed .
but I also have phpMyAdmin running php-nuke and coppermine photo galery.
in the same directory..
/var/www/html
So How come they work

I use RH 8 and apache and mysql all work fine but what can I do to fix this php Problem

does any body have an idea ?

thanks

phil81

Just thought id let you know that the real problem was that
short tags was set to off in php.ini

I assume that no serious php script should use short tags as you cant control the php.ini files on distant servers always


cheers Phil

damn!!! I was going to mention that but I didn't because php usually enables short tags by default.

Sorry...

Thumbs up

LoL

Sometimes we look for complicated answers
I admit that it is not always evident to explain problems especially for a novice like myself.

Its such a big migration from the easy buggy world of windows to
Linux and GPL .

Its like having to learn dos again with win3.1
Aargh!
Anyway I have been using the Oreilly php -mysql book but it talks too much about cgi and xml I am only interested in dynamic content management using php and mysql databases. And it is probably out of date.
So I ordered
PHP and MySQL Web Development
by
Luke Welling, Laura Thomson
http://admin.acrea81.com/test/book.gif
I will read this during the summer vacations.

I enjoyed your site
I wonder if Hunter s Thomson uses windows or linux ?
cheers
Phil

He uses Linux for his computing needs, and shoots Windows boxes in his back yard whilst liquored up.
