Calling pages contents using include

Recommended Posts

Hi, is there any difference between calling pages contents between PHP on Apcahe versus PHP on IIS? My problem is under PHP/Apache I used include command to call in pages contents (index.php?page=2) but under PHP/Windows platform, it cannot pass the page contents or page title and it only calls the page=0 contents.

As I said, my codes works under PHP/Apache and I have no problem calling in the contents of each page using switch statement ...

Any ideas how to solve this problem?

Here is a sample of my codes:
----------------
index.php
---

<?
include "contents.php";
?>

<?
include "pages/$content";
?>
-----------------
contents.php
---
<?
switch ($page)
{
case 0:
$content = "main.php";
$title = "Main";
break;

case 1:
$content = "page2.php";
$title = "Page two";
break;
?>

I'm not sure wheter this is gonna solve your problem,

But i think it's better to use

$page =$_GET['page'];

over just asuming that $page will contain the variable passed by GET. I don't think that the way you do it is supported by all OS.

good luck

have you tryed using require for the first one? not sure if that will treat it diffrent.. maby worth doing an echo after each case "case1"; echo "case2";... to see how far your code is getting.. do you get any errors?

Melv!

Tony was correct!

It appears that your installation on windows has register_globals turned off - which it should be these days anyway (hope they remove that config option in future versions).

if you are passing through the url like you say (index.php?page=1) then BEFORE you include contents.php define $page by...

$page = $_GET['page'];

$page will be 0 (or false or even unset) unless you do so.
