I am kind of new to php. However, I created a form in html and the form action is linked to a php which all on the localhost. When I run the html file enter in information and hit submit. A window pops up and asks me if I want to open my php file. It gives me the option of saving the file or opening it with a IDE that I have on my computer.
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit with an Apache Server installed, btw.
I appreciate everyone's input. I was going to though localhost in my browser. What I did was open the php file first, then closed that and went to the html file and opened that through the local host and it worked like a charm.
