    I am running win 98,apache 1.39 &php3. I cant get my browser Netscape working with php. I start the server open browser and then click on open page and all I see is the html no php. If I run php and speify the file from a dos prompt I see just the php.

    Any help appreciated.

    Here's a few things to check but I don't know your full configuration. I run xitami server on win 98 and it was easy to set up. apache may be similar.
    1. Make sure you set up you apache configuration under filters so that a file ending with php or php3 will be opened by php3.exe. Xitami is like this:
    php3 chp3php.exe
    If you have everything set up correctly then
    make sure your web files are under the servers webpages directories such as
    check your configuration for where the server may find your default site. On xitami it's:
    anything outside it will not work.

    2. You can't open your pages from the browser's file->open. Go to your address bar on your browser and type in:
    If you are using this server locally that's your url. But somepage.php3 has to be in the webpages directory. Of course your server has to be started and running also.
    Hope this makes sense. Good luck.

    Hi Wheels!
    Got the same problem right now with the Win98*Apache1.3.12*PHP3/4*MySQL

    Here some help getting it work:

    First of all post all the php3-stuff you need (this depends on the *.dll's you need) in the cgi-bin directory under the apache:


    Afterwards you need to modify two files:

    httpd.conf a n d the php3-ini.dist

    I give you an exerpt from mine, which works fine:
    "....(without definition httpd.conf ")
    Port 80

    DocumentRoot "c:/apache/htdocs"
    <Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    <Directory "c:/apache/htdocs">

    DirectoryIndex index.htm index.php3 index.php index.html

    #### P H P 3 - E x t e n s i o n s ######
    AddType application/x-httpd-php3 .php
    AddType application/x-httpd-php3 .php3
    AddType application/x-httpd-php3 .phtml
    AddType application/x-httpd-php3-source .phps

    ### P H P 3 A c t i o n - H a n d l e r ###
    Action application/x-httpd-php3 "/cgi-bin/php3.exe"
    # or
    Action application/x-httpd-phtml "/cgi-bin/php.exe"


    ok that's it for the first

    (php.ini-dist) - complete -


    ; About this file ;
    ; This file controls many aspects of PHP's behavior. In order for PHP to
    ; read it, it must be named 'php.ini'. PHP looks for it in the current
    ; working directory, in the path designated by the environment variable
    ; PHPRC, and in the path that was defined in compile time (in that order).
    ; Under Windows, the compile-time path is the Windows directory. The
    ; path in which the php.ini file is looked for can be overriden using
    ; the -c argument in command line mode.
    ; The syntax of the file is extremely simple. Whitespace and Lines
    ; beginning with a semicolon are silently ignored (as you probably guessed).
    ; Section headers (e.g. [Foo]) are also silently ignored, even though
    ; they might mean something in the future.
    ; Directives are specified using the following syntax:
    ; directive = value
    ; Directive names are *case sensitive* - foo=bar is different from FOO=bar.
    ; The value can be a string, a number, a PHP constant (e.g. E_ALL or M_PI), one
    ; of the INI constants (On, Off, True, False, Yes, No and None) or an expression
    ; (e.g. E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE), or a quoted string ("foo").
    ; Expressions in the INI file are limited to bitwise operators and parentheses:
    ; | bitwise OR
    ; & bitwise AND
    ; ~ bitwise NOT
    ; ! boolean NOT
    ; Boolean flags can be turned on using the values 1, On, True or Yes.
    ; They can be turned off using the values 0, Off, False or No.
    ; An empty string can be denoted by simply not writing anything after the equal
    ; sign, or by using the None keyword:
    ; foo = ; sets foo to an empty string
    ; foo = none ; sets foo to an empty string
    ; foo = "none" ; sets foo to the string 'none'
    ; If you use constants in your value, and these constants belong to a dynamically
    ; loaded extension (either a PHP extension or a Zend extension), you may only
    ; use these constants *after* the line that loads the extension.
    ; All the values in the php.ini-dist file correspond to the builtin
    ; defaults (that is, if no php.ini is used, or if you delete these lines,
    ; the builtin defaults will be identical).

    ; Language Options ;

    engine = On ; Enable the PHP scripting language engine under Apache
    short_open_tag = On ; allow the <? tag. otherwise, only <?php and <script> tags are recognized.
    asp_tags = Off ; allow ASP-style <% %> tags
    precision = 14 ; number of significant digits displayed in floating point numbers
    y2k_compliance = Off ; whether to be year 2000 compliant (will cause problems with non y2k compliant browsers)
    output_buffering = Off ; Output buffering allows you to send header lines (including cookies)
    ; even after you send body content, in the price of slowing PHP's
    ; output layer a bit.
    ; You can enable output buffering by in runtime by calling the output
    ; buffering functions, or enable output buffering for all files
    ; by setting this directive to On.
    implicit_flush = Off ; Implicit flush tells PHP to tell the output layer to flush itself
    ; automatically after every output block. This is equivalent to
    ; calling the PHP function flush() after each and every call to print()
    ; or echo() and each and every HTML block.
    ; Turning this option on has serious performance implications, and
    ; is generally recommended for debugging purposes only.
    allow_call_time_pass_reference = On ; whether to enable the ability to force arguments to be
    ; passed by reference at function-call time. This method
    ; is deprecated, and is likely to be unsupported in future
    ; versions of PHP/Zend. The encouraged method of specifying
    ; which arguments should be passed by reference is in the
    ; function declaration. You're encouraged to try and
    ; turn this option Off, and make sure your scripts work
    ; properly with it, to ensure they will work with future
    ; versions of the language (you will receive a warning
    ; each time you use this feature, and the argument will
    ; be passed by value instead of by reference).

    ; set to allow to change them.
