hey, im having lots of problems with php
the following php code

<?php
print ("hello world");
?>

for some reason outputs this:

hello world"); ?>

how can i get it to output just Hello World ?
id greatly appreciate any help on this as soon as possible as i have a project due today and
am having lots of trouble with the print statements.

also if i have a web page that has a link to a php file (say hello.php)
when i click on the link to it, it asks me to open/save the file and opens it in notepad
is there anything i have to install that stops this from happening and runs the php?
i have enclosed the php code in html this seems to be the only way of getting the page to load

Basicaly it means that PHP hasnt been installed/configure properly with apache.. If you manualy installed it then go thru the documentation again and double check everything :)

Create a new php document with the following code.

<?php
phpinfo()
?>

If php is configured it will show the php configuration selections and such.
If you don't see all the information, then something has gone wrong.
If so, I can only recommend what has already been said, go over the documentation of installation.

You will have to load your pages through the browser with the httpd protocol like so:
[a href=\"http://localhost/pagename.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://localhost/pagename.php[/a]

Or it may be like this:
[a href=\"http://localhost/~username/pagename.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://localhost/~username/pagename.php[/a]

it depend on how your college server has been setup.
