I'm just starting to learn PHP but even the "Hello Worlds" Script's don't run.
If I do php.exe index.htm it runs but if i start it in my IE5 nothing appears..
Here's the code :
$myvar = "Hello World";
thnx in advance... laxin

If your server isn't set up to execute php3 on .htm scripts it won't work. Either change the extension to .php3 or set a directive to tell your server to have php3 parse your .htm file.

I posted the above message, but I just discovered the answer.
It turns out that evidently somewhere in my IIS configuration, I had not made the root directory executable. I had already made the directory with the actual php3 script executable, but I guess that wasn't enough. I hope this will help anybody else that might get the same error.
