New user to PHP bought a book and...

Postby ToiletDuck » Fri Feb 21, 2003 1:06 pm

Im having problems getting php to work. The book is called "PHP fast&easy web development" second edition, written by Julie C. Meloni She gives a step by step guide to installing Mysql, Apache, and php. I get the first 2 installed with no problem, and when i think i get php installed right it doesnt show the correct output. It also mentioned to write a simple script <? phpinfo (); ?> to call up php. I should then get a screen that shows a screen with a list of system and enviroment information. But all i get is the script that is shown above. I am running this on a win98 machine. I thought ASP was a pain in the butt to learn :) But im starting to get frustrated with trying to get the installs to run right for PHP.

Thanks

Hi!
If you using ASP and PHP too, to you need set in php.ini next:
short_open_tag=Off and
asp_tags=Off
