problems getting my code running in Explorer 6.

Hi, I am trying to learn PHP but am having some problems getting my code
running in Explorer 6.

<html>
<head>
<title>PHP Test</title>
</head>
<body>
<?php echo '<p>Hello World</p>'; ?>
</body>
</html>

outputs a blank page. So I done the 'associate .php file extension with the
PHP script interpreter' and now it runs the script in the interpreter.

By the way I don't have the Internet at home or a server installed, is this
the problem?

I don't see a problem?

If you want to be able to browse to your pages/scripts you'll have to
install a webserver. Can find a free one at http://httpd.apache.org.

No, you won't have. It's at my house at the moment. Pop round sometime and
borrow it if you want. Just be sure to bring it back though! ;-)

Yup! You need to install a server on your PC (eg. Apache), download and
install PHP from http://www.php.net, and then it should work. Just remember
that you can't just open "C:\My websites\phptes tpage.php" like you could do
with an ordinary html page, it must be opened through the server, so
something like http://localhost/phptestpage.php... If you have any probs
with the installation, there is extensive documentation at the php website.
If that fails you, I'm sure someone here will guide you through! :-)

You can save all this hassle by getting on the internet at home and then
ftp'ing your pages to some php-enabled web space if it is at all possible.

Cheers,
Nige

What OS are you running? If you're running Linux or Mac you should have a
webserver built in.

If you're running some flavor of windows, then go grab either IIS (for
NT/2K/XP) or Apache (for all) web server and install. Then you need to
configure said web server to parse PHP files. There's loads of tutorials
out there on how to do this, just use my friend, Google.

I used the all-in-one package of PHP/Apache/MySQL from EasyPHP. Setup
wasn't too bad. You have to load an English overlay for some of the
menus and stuff, I think one of them is still in French.

Nige, I urgently need the Internet tomorrow, can you send it over for a day
or two ? I'll cover the postage fee of course.
THANX!

Even better, I'll fax it too you! Just make sure you've got a fresh roll of
paper in the fax machine - it's quite big! ;-)

webserver built in.

I am running XP. Didn't know it had a built in web server. I will try
and get it running.
I remember trying to install Apache from a comp mag cd but it required
something else to install itself on XP (Can't remember what).
Will get back to you if I have any problems.

Don't waste your time with IIS, use Apache. Download it from
http://httpd.apache.org/

If you really want to have fun, try faxing someone a copy of a necktie. Then
call them and yell : help, I'm stuck in the faxmachine!
