Apache, on your system is not interpeting the PHP code. So you either have to try using: <?php .. ?> instead of the short hand <? ... ?> if that does'nt work, you have to check Apaches http.conf file for extra and erroranous AddType declerations: AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml is the only one you need. Also make sure apache is loading the PHP module: LoadModule php4_module drive:/path_to_where_/php4apache.dll and Make sure that the php.ini file is easy to find (I put mine in the same directory as http.conf). now, php/apache needs php4ts.dll, I leave that dll in the php directory, and create a global-enviro to the path search string. You can either do that as a temporary by creating a batch file that changes to your work directory, and adds the path. or add the path through: right click( My Computer) -> propertires -> Advanced -> Enviroment Variables choose the system Enviroment, look for path, choose edit and add the path to where PHP resides.
