Need help with Apache and PHP
I am new to Apache and PHP. I completely installed both Apache and PHP into my win XP. I followed the look wrote a test program to do the test. It worked fine. But the problem started when i wrote second PHP page, when i tried to test the second PHP page, the output of the page is blank.( I am sure the syntax is correct).

 Problem 2. I modified the content of the first test program.( Let say the content of the first test program is " it works fine", then I modified the content to " I modified the content") When i opened the test program, the content of the page is still "it works fine".
  Problem 3. I deleted all the files in the localhost folder, when I typed in http://localhost/firsttest.php in the browser, the " it works fine" text display on the web page. Is it supposed not to be displayed on the web page? because i deleted it already.
  Please help me findout what went wrong. Thanks

What does your test code for the second page look like? Post a snip of it here.

The Test Code looks like it:

  echo " I wish this times works ";

Why the ouput is blank?

Your page is probably just cached. Hit refresh in your browser and the page should reload with the current contents.

If your page is still blank when you load it and refresh it, then perhaps Apache does not recognize .php files as PHP. You'll need to open httpd.conf and make sure this line contains ".php":


AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .phtml .php4

Hi I'm having problem with Apache I install it and set these settings:

 DomainName = leap2.co.uk
 ServerName = www.leap2.co.uk
 ServerAdmin = webmaster@leap2.co.uk
 ServerPort = 80
 ServerRoot = C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2

Once i had installed it there was an error i got a DOS Window popup!


When i try to do a test "http://localhost/" it says Done in the status bar but there is know successful message, also I have downloaded this version of Apache apache_2.0.50-win32-x86-no_ss

Thank you for the help in advance!

i ahve the same exact problem and for some odd reason when i load the module:

LoadModule php4_module c:/php/sapi/php4apache.dll

it either freezes or doesn't load at all an i have seen the test coding still in texteditor format rather than php

Problem fixed and i don't have a clue probably needed to restart it.

I am new to PHP and am following the "Beginning PHP, etc..." book. I have followed the directions on pps 15-16, and in Appendix I regarding the Apache install.
I get the success page when entering, but that is all I get. I have added the test/index, and still the success page, not the index.html page. When I installed Apache I accepted the defaults for server and domain name info (which were correct). When I attempt to monitor the server I cannot, but do get an error message when I restart the server which states, "Cannot load D:/php/sapi/php4apache2.dll; specified module cannot be found." I have two hard drives and I have installed apache on D.
Any clues as to what I have done wrong?

Almost forgot to mention...
I read the above posts, and wanted to add that when I customized the installation per page 15 I entered:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3
(and added .phtml .php4 to the end of the above per BuzzLY's post. Of course I have made sure to add LoadModule php4_module D:/php/sapi/php4apache.dll. I have also used the refresh to no avail. The HTML looks like Yaluyahee's. Hope that the additional info helps because I am baffled.

LoadModule php4_module D:/php/sapi/php4apache2.dll (I double checked...I did added the php4_module like this, not LoadModule php4_module D:/php/sapi/php4apache.dll. Sorry.
