Ok, So I bought a book on PHP/MySQL and I installed the lastest version of each including apache 2.
Now I finally got apache running and set my root. But I dont think that my php is being parsed. The code the book says to write is<!Doctype html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional/EN" "http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml1-transitional.dtd Blank PHP Script <?php echo 'This is my second PHP script!'; ?>
but when I open it in the browser (yes with the http://localhost rather than file://) it shows just a blank page… and that pisses me off. I spent 7 hours trying to figure it out. I was going absolutley crazy…
any help is appriciated
