Default Beginning PHP

Hi everyone
     I bought the book Beginning PHP 4 a long time ago, and am just now getting around to getting started. I am running Windows 2K Professional and IIS 5. I downloaded the msi file for PHP 5.2.0 from PHP website and installed it. I made a simple HTML page with "PHP info to follow" and then <?php phpinfo(); ?>. When I call up the test.php page on the localhost all that shows up is the HTML text. Can anyone help me please. Now that was stupid. Naturally there is someone out there that can help! Please. Thank you

everetts

Hi everetts,

My quess is ur php isnt working on ur IIS. Try a simple php file with only the following code to see if ur php works
Code:
<?php
echo("php is working");
?>
if the tags show up your php isnt working
I php running on IIS. However I've been working on it for days to get php to work on IIS and I recommend u just download Xampp which will make php and mysql work with one simple installation prosedure.

regards

DJ Kat

Thanks DJ Kat. I tried your suggestion and it worked. Different day and now it works. Maybe all I needed to do was re-boot. DUH!!! Thanks again
