PHP not working with WAMP

I have installed WAMPServer from
Apache : 2.4.9 MySQL : 5.6.17
PHP : 5.5.12
PHPMyAdmin : 4.1.14
SqlBuddy : 1.3.3
XDebug : 2.2.5

PHMyAdmin is working and I can gte phpinfo() page.
I am able to access the Apache server at localhost.
I created a directory at C:wamp/www/test
and put there a file called test.html which has HTML, PHP and JavaScript.

Hello world!
<a href="">search</a>
<?php echo "hiya"; ?>

The HTML and JavaScript are working fine but the PHP echo is not.
Any help would be appreciated.

I think you have to name your files with the .php extension, not .html, in order for it to run it through the PHP engine. At least out of the box, anyway.

The simplest means of testing whether php is working or not is creating a file named index.php with the below content.

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Yes that was the problem. I renamed the file test.html.php and it works fine now.
Thank you both,
