Http Forms - unable to submit and run php

Recommended Posts

I am trying call a .php file from an HTTP form but all I get is the .php file's code brought up in a notepad window. Any ideas on what in my configuration is going wrong?  I am able to run .php files thru my browser, just not from forms.  Here is what I have for code:


<form action="addUrlForm.php" method="post">

<p> URL = <input type="text" size="75" name="url" > </p>

<p> Description = <textarea rows="5" wrap="VIRTUAL" name="description"></textarea> </p>

<p> Service = <input type="text" size="72" name="service" /> </p>

<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Send!">





require_once('C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\linkmanager.php');

$url = $_POST['url'];
$description = $_POST['description'];
$service = $_POST['service'];

$lm = new linkmanager();
$lm->addLink_uds($url, $description, $service);

echo 'Url = '.$url;

This seems to a coniguration problem with your server. What server have you got installed (APache, IIS) alsow what version of PHP do you have installed and how is PHP configured with your server?
