Are you running both through http://localhost/nameoffile.php ? If so then there should be no issue as it is all server end.

hi guys, i found a solution on this link from Daniweb also. http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/microsoft-windows/threads/30275/ie-wont-open-local-php-files-anymore
need to do some registry editing, and here's the solution from the URL above:
u need to change the .php file settings through regedit. Go to start --> run --> regedit --> under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, right click on .php file and select New String value. Name it Content Type. Then double click Content Type in the right panel of the window and add text/html under Value data.
