Dear friends,

I have created a html page with dynamic select boxes and included the below line in the form <form action="sqlpage.php"target="_blank" method="post">. The mentioned sqlpage.php contains some php code which connects to MySQL DB and search for queries and displays the results on a webpage.

But when i run the html page and enter search terms in the query box and click search it directs to this sqlpage and i don't see any results but the php code is displayed as it it on the page. This is bcoz i guess that html page is not interpreting this action sqlpage.php.

I would be thankful if someone help me in this matter.

Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards
Aravind

Have you install php editor for that....you require Apache server for that...So check whether you have that or not....otherwise download WAMP Server,Xampp server...

you are required to install php, mysql to run .php files so simply download XAMPP and install it into your local machine

From your first post you setup your form to use the POST method but your PHP page references $_GET variables. You should change $_GET to $_POST so that your form data is sent over to the PHP page.
I have had the same issue with WAMP and XAMPP where my PHP code is displayed as if I'm looking at a text file. I ended up uninstalling WAMP and re-installing XAMPP to fix it although I think it's got something to do with the permissions of the htdocs folder (Windows doesn't like the use Unix permissions on their folders, so it's not the easiest to change in my opinion).
Hope this gives you some direction.
