Action application/x-httpd-php "/php/php.exe"
when i execute phpinfo(); it works fine but i can't get to pass a variable from a html form to use it in any other place.

<form action="thisfile.php" method="GET">
<p>Give your name: <input type="text" name="yourname">
<br><input type="submit" name="Submit">
very simple isn't it? but the $yourname inside the php tags can just never get the value of the yourname that I type in the text box, it's empty.
I noticed that this seems work in php3 but not php4 right? So how is the correct way to do this? even my php4 begineer book is teaching the wrong thing

because global vars are off
