[RESOLVED] PHP <!Doctype> error. IE9
When I run my index.php with the following doctype:
It works in both Chrome and Firefox everything is displayed. The problem is in IE9 it just shows the html sourcecode.
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
Now I know it't not the code because when the file extension was index.html it displayed fine in IE9.
I've also tried
Which is ment to work with all the new browsers. Probably a stupid question but anyone shed some light?
Update: Not a DOCTYPE error. In fact its the XAMPP webserver for some reason http://localhost/htdocs is unable to be found in ie. And I can't manage to get the file:///C:/xampp/htdocs/myfiles/index.php to work in ie. Anyone know how to solve this please reply. Thanks.
It definitely won't work if you use a "file://" protocol type, as you'll then be bypassing the web server, which means PHP won't be invoked. I have no idea why IE would be misbehaving with the "http://localhost", other than maybe you should clear its cache and then try again?

Ok. So I had to delete the default index.php & index.html that comes with the XAMPP.
Thanks for the reply. "http://localhost/xampp/htdocs/myfiles" should work but I get:
Object not found!
The requested URL was not found on this server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.
If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
Apache/2.4.3 (Win32) OpenSSL/1.0.1c PHP/5.4.7
So I've must of not set-up XAMPP properly or giving the program the correct permissions.
maybe there was some problem with your directory index configuration in httpd.conf
