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.
