Php output

Hello Everyone,

I am not new to linux but I am new to php and I have a problem with my script or something to do with my redhat sever, I am not sure.

Anyhow I have made a form page at and have it set up to take data and spit it out on a confirm page. Please forgive the formatting as it is in the first stage. Anyway, if you fill out the form and submit it you get the sentence. " This is your first name. instead of "This is your first name ROBB. The page comm.php is seeing my process.php page and spitting out the first part but is not getting the variables $firstname or ROBB is not showing up. Any ideas?

You probably have register_globals turned off. Check it by looking at your php.ini file. In fact it's better this way for better security. You can print $firstname by using $_POST['firstname'] if you're sending the form's content by "post" or $_GET['firstname'] if they are sent by "get".

I got it

Thanks Mirrorball!

I was actually typing $_POST['firstname'] out on the feedback page and there should be no '' around firstname in this script just in the form. Like.. $_POST[firstname].

Thanks a bunch!
