There may be other problems that aren't obvious...


You need to make a change to your php.ini file: run phpinfo() in a script and it will tell you where you can find the file near the top. Hopefully you do have one.

In there are two settings to change:

error_reporting = -1
display_errors = on
They exist in the file somewhere and probably in two locations: one place describes a bunch of settings, the other is the actual location where the setting is defined. Possibly commented out with a semicolon, in which case you need to uncomment it after changing the value.


When you do that, restart Apache and run phpinfo() again. Then look for those two settings - they should have the new values.


Then try your script again. There will probably be some kind of error message. Or more than one.
