Hello everyone. First post...
I have a strange problem... used to be that Internet Explorer 6 would open PHP files that I had stored on my local machine (which is not a server). I would usually get some kind of "pop-up" warning from IE asking me if I wanted to view the file but then after that I could view the file just fine (minus the actual scripting stuff of course).
Now, whenever I try to open one of these PHP files with IE, I get the hourglass for 2 seconds and then nothing. No IE window, no error. Nothing.
IE will open up on its own and I can browse PHP files on the Internet all day long with no problems. But the ones on my local machine no longer open, where before they would even though I am not running any kind of server technology.
IE will also open HTML and CSS files on the local machine with no problem, just not PHP. Firefox has no issues at all with any files.
I'm running XP SP2 on a very stable machine that is rarely allowed internet access and is very strongly protected with Norton AV, ZoneAlarm and AdAware. I only use IE to check the websites that I personally build so little chance of picking up something nasty on the Net.
I've even tried reloading an older Ghost file that I *knew* didn't exhibit this problem but it does it even with that which is even more peculiar.
