How do I know whether or not our web host (Verio) will allow my website to have php? Please forgive my lack of accurate terms. Is there some place I can find that information? I have emailed customer support but not heard back yet.

thanks!

Asking your host is the easiest way.

You could create a test script named testit.php with this line in it:
<?php phpinfo (); ?>
(remove the space between phpinfo and the ()

Upload it to your hosting area and then invoke it in your browser at [a href=\"http://your.domainname.com/testit.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://your.domainname.com/testit.php[/a]

If you see many pages of nicely formatted information, your server supports PHP

okay...proof of how little I know about this: Where do I put the script? On an existing web page and upload it? Where in the code do I insert it?

thanks!

Write the code that Ken suggested. Save it as testit.php. It's a complete, stand-alone php script - it doesn't need to be pasted into a page.

Upload testit.php to the same place on your web site as your index page. Browse to www.yourdomain.com/testit.php
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.

Holy cow! Thanks! I get a page with loads of tables and the heading on the page is "PHP Version 4.4.1" So, I'm thinking that I have PHP installed. Okey dokey...thanks! Now I go back to my other thread and try to figure out why the php calendar script wouldn't show up.
thanks!
