    php.ini problem?

    Hi,
    I am just learning PHP. On my XP home ed. I installed Apache httpd-2.217-win32-x86_nossl.msi and php 5.2.17-win32-x86.msi
    · The typical ‘Hello World!’ and php.info beginner files worked ok. Next I tried a simple form and script (posted here following these comments).
    · I’ve tried dozens of different ways to get this to work. This example yields a “welcome” when the submit button is clicked but my string is lost.( in Firefox and it outputs the whole text file in Explorer8 after asking for permission to download it.
    · My suspicion is that I need to enable or disable some php option in the php.ini file. Interestingly, I have no php.ini-dist file included with the download.
    · I don’t know what else to do, so I hope somebody ‘out there’ has some suggestions. It is difficult to learn when your successes are no different looking than your mistakes!
    · Thank you for your time!

    · The following is in my php.ini file:
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    ; About this file ;
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    ; This is the recommended, PHP 5-style version of the php.ini-dist file. It
    ; sets some non standard settings, that make PHP more efficient, more secure,
    ; and encourage cleaner coding.
    ;
    ; The price is that with these settings, PHP may be incompatible with some
    ; applications, and sometimes, more difficult to develop with. Using this
    ; file is warmly recommended for production sites. As all of the changes from
    ; the standard settings are thoroughly documented, you can go over each one,
    ; and decide whether you want to use it or not.
    ;
    ; For general information about the php.ini file, please consult the php.ini-dist
    ; file, included in your PHP distribution.
    ;
    ; This file is different from the php.ini-dist file in the fact that it features
    ; different values for several directives, in order to improve performance, while
    ; possibly breaking compatibility with the standard out-of-the-box behavior of
    ; PHP. Please make sure you read what's different, and modify your scripts
    ; accordingly, if you decide to use this file instead.

    Your php file has syntax errors - they won't be reported unless you enable error reporting (through php.ini or you can do it locally too):

    Put this at the top of your php script:

    error_reporting(E_ALL)

    try this, though im not sure that this is what your asking for or if it will help at all, but try changing the php file to this
    PHP Code:
    $firstName $_POST['firstname'];
    echo 
    "$firstName"

    I did what you suggested, and tried variants like adding a semicolon and
    | E_STRICT, but detected no change. Where do errors show up?

    This from the phpinfo?:
    Configuration File (php.ini) Path C:\WINDOWS
    Loaded Configuration File (none)
    Scan this dir for additional .ini files (none)
    additional .ini files parsed (none)
    Is this normal?

    My PHP configuration Core Table (from phpinfo?) reports:
    display_errors On On
    display_startup_errors Off Off

    There is this line in php.ini:
    ; - error_reporting = E_ALL [Code Cleanliness, Security(?)]
    Question: Does the preceding semicolon disable the following line?

    Thanks for your help, I am still frustrated!

    Maxdream01,
    I missed your post, but have now tried it to no avail. I think I need to enable something but I'm so new to php that I can't spot it! I am tempted to delete it and try a different version, but it seems this one should work.
    Thanks for thinking about it!

    In php.ini files when a line is preceeded by a ; then it is "commented out". If you make any changes to a php.ini file on a server, you need to restart the server for whatever the changes were to take effect.

    PHP Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
    <title>welcome.php</title>
    </head>

    <body>
    <p>

    Welcome

    <?php
       $firstname 
    $_POST["firstname"];
       echo 
    $_POST["firstname"];
       
       
    ?>

    </p>
    </body>
    </html>
    Adding
    PHP Code:
    ini_set('display_errors'1); 
    at the start of a php script (after the <?php ) will cause errors to be displayed.

    PHP Code:
    ini_set('error_reporting', -1); 
    is used to set the error reporting level level to report all errors.

    No change, but I could kick myself for all the times I've tried things without restarting the server!
    Next I think I will try to find a good php.ini sample as maxdream01 suggested and look for differences.
    I get the 'Welcome' so the page is found and served, but the php script is not running. So I tried this:

    Code PHP:
     <?php 
          ini_set('display_errors', 1);
          echo <p>Hello World</p>; 
          ?>

    <p>
    Code HTML4Strict:
    Welcome
    Code PHP:
    <?php
          ini_set('display_errors', 1); 
          $firstname = $_POST["firstname"];
          echo $_POST["firstname"];
          ?>
    </p>

    And the result in firefox :

    Hello World

    ; ?>

    Welcome

    so my conclusion is that the php is present but crippled somehow... no errors reported as far as I know.

    Pasting that last snippet in and restarting Apache resulted in no change. All I get is the html "Welcome". I don't know where PHP errors are displayed. In the Apache error log for this activity I found:

    httpd.exe: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 10.0.0.2 for ServerName
    [Mon May 16 10:35:31 2011] [notice] Child 896: All worker threads have exited.
    [Mon May 16 10:35:31 2011] [notice] Child 896: Child process is exiting
    [Mon May 16 10:35:31 2011] [notice] Child 3308: Child process is running
    [Mon May 16 10:35:31 2011] [notice] Child 3308: Acquired the start mutex.
    [Mon May 16 10:35:31 2011] [notice] Child 3308: Starting 64 worker threads.
    [Mon May 16 10:35:31 2011] [notice] Child 3308: Starting thread to listen on port 80

    I don't know what that means, but it doesn't seem relevant.
    Back to looking at the php.ini...
    Thank You for helping...

    It looks to me like php is either not running at all or not set to parse .php files (which is strange). Create a new file named "test.php", containing this:

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    phpinfo
    ();
    ?>
    and post the resulting page here (link or copy/paste)

    OK - now open up that exact same file, delete everything in there, and copy/paste this:

    PHP Code:
    <?php

    ini_set
    ('error_reporting'E_ALL);
    ini_set('display_errors','On');
    echo 
    '<form method="post"><input type="submit" name="test" value="test" /></form><pre>'.print_r($_POSTtrue).'</pre>';
    save and upload, then click the 'test' button and let me know what happens.

    What happened:

    (http://localhost/test.php)

    A test button appeared.
    below it:

    Array
    (
    )

    When the test button was clicked it changed to:


    Array
    (
    [test] => test
    )

    I haven't thought about this yet but will post later, this evening. Thanks for the interest!

    Alright, so perhaps I don't understand what the issue is because everything appears to be working fine with php.

    aamonkey -From your response I gather that your script yielded the expected result (being new to php it was not obvious to me).

    Originally, I made a html page that had a form field to input a name and submit. The name $variable was to be used by php to produce a page that would show "Welcome, 'name' ".(Actual code used is in my original post in this thread).

    All that gets printed is the "Welcome". So I somehow connect with the page with the script on it but it fails to execute...because...
    Bad syntax? I've tried many permutations to no avail, so I believe it to be something else, perhaps something in my server configuration file.

    I am going to sleep on it, perhaps an answer will come by morning.

    The test file I had you make prooves that php is running and working - are you absolutely sure that your other test php files that haven't been working have the .php extension?
