Greetings,

I am very new at all this and am working to get Apache 2 and php5 working together. I have downloaded both and installed them so many times I have lost count. At any rate, I believe I have them working now, but when I test a php page in Firefox, it shows up, but when I test it in Explorer, all I get is a blank screen. When I check the page source I can see the script (which is a small date script) in explorer.

I am wondering if I have everything set up right, or am I missing something? Why would it work in FF and not explorer? Please do have patience with me I am quite new and merely wish to learn.

Thanks for any and all help.

It shouldn't matter what browser your using as php is parsed ont eh server and then sent to the browser.

How are you calling these pages? Are you using a local address such as [a href=\"http://localhost/script.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://localhost/script.php[/a] in the address bar?

Yes, actually I am using localhost just because I am trying to figure all this out. I didn't think that it should matter what web browser I was using.

I had made a test.html page, to test apache as well and with Explorer I see what I have in the index.html, but with the php test, I get a blank page.
With FF, I see the instal page for apache "sucessful installation!", but no index.html. I see the test.php too!

I find this quite confusing and do not know where the issue could lie.
Once again, any and all help is greatly appreciated.
