Xampp

Ok, I installed XAMPP on my computer so I can work with PHP, well, I must be doing something wrong, I have my menu, header and footer in the inc folder, but when I open the index.php all that shows up is what is in the index.php, the header, footer and menu .php do not show up. What am I doing wrong, the inc folder is in localfolder/xampp/inc and the index is in localfolder/xampp/inc/index.php Thanks

Did you run the batch file to start apache?

and then goto http://localhost/inc/index.php

 

the files have to be in or below the htdocs folder.

 

 

i started the program with the main program, I will try the batcdh file

 

when you say below, do you mean? Sorry for the newbie questions.

You should always use the batch file to start xammp and stop xammp. It does some nice orderly things like start/stop apache, mysql, etc.

 

The inc directory is where the files you want "included" go. When I've used xammp, I've placed all my html files in the html directory. (I've got xammplite, so I don't know if there is a significant difference or not between the two.)

Thank you all for your wonderful help, I was up till 2:30 last night, and for some reason, nothing that I did would work, Apache is running, the files are where they are supose to be, but no matter what I tried, all I could get to show was just the index file. Not sure what version of XAMPP I have, but I think I am going to give up.

Since you can see the contents of index.php, and it does not appear to be including the include files, it is probably a problem with your code in index.php. Post the contents of index.php here and I'm sure we can figure it out. Use the "Wrap in code tags" button when you post it.

Paths are a litte harder in xampp because it uses the root folder

Which is why I generally put all the files in one folder below htdocs.

Lets say I call the folder site1

 

Then I send the browser to htpp://localhost/site1

My includes are in the same folder,

so for my index.php file I use a simple include

 

><?php include("header.php"); ?>

 

So if all your files are in the same folder that will work.

 

But if your includes are in another folder below

as in site1/inc

then use

 

><!-- Starting Header Include -->
<?php include("inc/header.php"); ?>
<!-- Ending Header Include -->

 

 

So where is the index.php file located and where are the includes?

Also I see you are adding all the html code in each page

normally that is part of the header and footer

my template looks like this

 

><?php
// add header and additional title
$page_title="home"; 
include('header.php');
	  
// begin main content 
?>

<h2> <?php echo $page_title; ?> </h2>

<p>content</p>

<?php
// end main content 

// add footer file 
include("footer.php");
?>

 

The header has all the html up to the content

and the footer has all the html after the content.

That way I can change the layout with just two files.

Ok lets see if I can explain this, my site folder is at:

 

K:\xampp\htdocs\jsa

^^^^^

localhost

 

the index.php is in the jsa folder

 

my INc folder is at:

 

K:\xampp\htdocs\jsa\inc

^^^^^

localhost

 

so is that right or wrong.

 

I remermber having this problem before, and working it out.

Start reading your original post from that point down and you should get it sorted out.

 

 

finally got it to work, thanks Don and Bruce , you're are the best, you deserve a raise!!!! :tchrocks: :tchrocks: :tchrocks: :tchrocks: :tchrocks:

 

also, I was using my browser to open the file, and it does not like that...So I type it in manually
