Hi! I am a newbie, and recently I have installed php, apache, and mysql on my computer. However, after type some codes the browers left ÈpartÈ of the php code on the brower. It almost seem like the browser doesnèt recognize the code or something.

below is what my browser shows

Bob's Auto Parts
Order Results
Order processed at '; echo date('H:i, jS F'); echo '

'; echo '

Your order is as follows:
'; $totalqty = 0; $totalqty = $tireqty + $oilqty + $sparkqty; echo 'Items ordered: '.$totalqty.'
'; if( $totalqty == 0) { echo 'You did not order anything on the previous page!
'; } else { if ( $tireqty>0 ) echo $tireqty.' tires
'; if ( $oilqty>0 ) echo $oilqty.' bottles of oil
'; if ( $sparkqty>0 ) echo $sparkqty.' spark plugs
'; } $totalamount = 0.00; define('TIREPRICE', 100); define('OILPRICE', 10); define('SPARKPRICE', 4); $totalamount = $tireqty * TIREPRICE + $oilqty * OILPRICE + $sparkqty * SPARKPRICE; echo 'Subtotal: $'.number_format($totalamount,2).'
'; $taxrate = 0.10; // local sales tax is 10% $totalamount = $totalamount * (1 + $taxrate); echo 'Total including tax: $'.number_format($totalamount,2).'
'; if($find == 'a') echo '

Regular customer.
'; elseif($find == 'b') echo '

Customer referred by TV advert.
'; elseif($find == 'c') echo '

Customer referred by phone directory.
'; elseif($find == 'd') echo '

Customer referred by word of mouth.
'; else echo '

We do not know how this customer found us.
'; ?> 

THis is the code that I used

<?php
  // create short variable names
  $tireqty = $_POST['tireqty'];
  $oilqty = $_POST['oilqty'];
  $sparkqty = $_POST['sparkqty'];
  $find = $_POST['find'];
?>
<html>
<head>
  <title>Bob's Auto Parts - Order Results</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Bob's Auto Parts</h1>
<h2>Order Results</h2>
<?php

echo '<p>Order processed at ';
echo date('H:i, jS F');
echo '</p>';

echo '<p>Your order is as follows: </p>';

$totalqty = 0;
$totalqty = $tireqty + $oilqty + $sparkqty;
echo 'Items ordered: '.$totalqty.'<br />';

if( $totalqty == 0)
{
  echo 'You did not order anything on the previous page!<br />';
}
else
{
  if ( $tireqty>0 )
    echo $tireqty.' tires<br />';
  if ( $oilqty>0 )
    echo $oilqty.' bottles of oil<br />';
  if ( $sparkqty>0 )
    echo $sparkqty.' spark plugs<br />';
}

$totalamount = 0.00;

define('TIREPRICE', 100);
define('OILPRICE', 10);
define('SPARKPRICE', 4);

$totalamount = $tireqty * TIREPRICE
             + $oilqty * OILPRICE
             + $sparkqty * SPARKPRICE;

echo 'Subtotal: $'.number_format($totalamount,2).'<br />';

$taxrate = 0.10;  // local sales tax is 10%
$totalamount = $totalamount * (1 + $taxrate);
echo 'Total including tax: $'.number_format($totalamount,2).'<br />';


if($find == 'a')
  echo '<p>Regular customer.</p>';
elseif($find == 'b')
  echo '<p>Customer referred by TV advert.</p>';
elseif($find == 'c')
  echo '<p>Customer referred by phone directory.</p>';
elseif($find == 'd')
  echo '<p>Customer referred by word of mouth.</p>';
else
  echo '<p>We do not know how this customer found us.</p>';


?>

I have also attached a file with the screenshot of what I see

the server isn't reading the php code. did you set up apache to work with php.

also, fyi the browser doesn't read php code, the server does.

yes I did set it up with apache

and these are the lines that I typed into the APACHE conf file

LoadModule php5_module "c:/Program Files/PHP/php5apache2_2.dll"
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
PHPIniDir "c:/Program Files/PHP"

just checking: did you give the file a .php extension.

a lot of people make that mistake. hopefully you are not one of them.

The page isn't being parsed. Here are a few questions to varify:
1.) Are you sure Apache is running? (Check the Task Manager for Apache.exe)
2.) Are you testing the file under localhost? (Does the url say "http://localhost/filename.php" or does it say "C:/...")
3.) Is the php file saved in the htdocs folder?

There are many other possibilities but these are the common ones that are easily solved.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Since I am new at this it is very possible that I will make common mistakes. I have given all files a .php extension, and infact the file I pulled out is an example from a cd in a php text book, so I am pretty sure they didnot do anything wrong.

Thanks again for the reply

to me it seems that the server only interprets part of the code since not all of it was left out.

for example if I type:

<?php

echo '<p>Order processed at ';
echo date('H:i, jS F');
echo '</p>';

THis would be the result shown on the browser:

echo '<p>Order processed at ';
echo date('H:i, jS F');
echo '</p>';

Hi,

as for my answers to your questions:

1. Apache is running, I have check taskmanager and servers in administrator tools.
2. I am not testing it under localhost the url says c:..
3. I have not tried it in the htdocs folder, however I have tried it just now and it still displays parts of the code.

Tootol. I tested your script with both php and html extensions. When given a php extension, the file works perfect. When given an html extension, the file looks identical to the screen shot you provided. Make sure that you have the file saved in htdocs and are previewing through localhost.

Hi buddylee! I have just placed the files into htdocs, opened my file by typing http://localhost/processorder.php it shows exactly how I wanted it to be. Thank for the help! however I still have a question, when I try to link the page to a submit form I created with <form action="processorder.php" method="post">. the preview of the php code still pops up with c:.. How do I fix it so it will pop up on localhostÉ

put all your php files in the htdocs then try again.

Thanks for the reply!

I have done what you told me and it is working perfectly right now! Thank you for your help! You have made my day :)
