You probably forgot the ";"
The correct code syntax should be:

<?phpinfo();?>

Use the full PHP opening tag (<?php):
<?php
phpinfo();
?>

Thanks for your help guys

I inserted the colon, but still no joy

I installed apache, mysql and php yesterday

That script was first attempt to get going. As I get nothing is it possible that something else is wrong?

Is this the right place to ask? Where can I turn for help?  ???

Did you use my suggestion, usoing the full PHP opening tag - <?php

Looking at that guide it is a little old. I suggest you do the following to configure Apache with PHP. First find the httpd.defualt.conf file. Now rename this to httpd.conf to overright the existing httpd.conf file.

Now you have reset the config file back to defualt. Find this:
#LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so
Add the following after it:
LoadModule php5_module "C:/php/php5apache2.dll"
PHPIniDir "C:/WINDOWS"
If you have PHP4, use this instead of the php5_module line:
LoadModule php4_module "C:/php/isapi/php4apache2.dll"
Now scroll down and find the following:
DirectoryIndex and add index.php to the end of the list, making sure you add a space between the last entry in the list, like so:
DirectoryIndex index.html index.html.var index.php
Now find the following:
AddType application/x-gzip .gz .tgz
now add the following after it:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml
AddType application/x-httpd-phps .phps
Now save the httpd.conf file. Find the php.ini file and move it to C:\WINDOWS if you haven't done so already.
Now restart Apache Server.

If Apache starts with no beeps or errors appearing. Then Apache has been configured to parse PHP files with the PHP Intepreter. Now try running your php file again.
