Help-Php only displays blank paper & the code itself...

Postby peaceofcrap2001 » Fri Jan 16, 2004 9:04 am

Hey,
I am just getting started with PHP. I have installed PHP 4.3.4 and Apache 1.3.2 on my win 98. The apache server is running fine and http://localhost/phptest.php (which chontains <? phpinfo() ?> ) is working.

here is my problem... I wrote another simple php code (hello.php)and saved it in my web directory.

here is the "hello.php"

<?
echo "hello world";
?>

I typed on the address bar "http://localhost/hello.php". It is running, but displays just a white blank window.

I wrote another one integrating the php code in html form.

here is the html form
<form method = "post" action = "sendmail.php">
Email: <input name = "email" Type = "text"/> <br/>
Message: <br/>
<textarea name= "message" cols= "60" rows = "20"></textarea><br/>
<input Value = "submit" type= "submit"/>
</form>

here is "sendmail.php"

<?
$email = $_REQUEST['email'];
$message = $_REQUEST['message'];

mail( "peaceofcrap2001@yahoo.com", "request for information", $message, "From: $email" );
header("location: http://www.yahoo.com");
?>

And this one displays the php code itself. So, I was wondering if anybody could help me out!

Thank you for your time
