Hello,
I know from following many posts that some one here will readily
see the solution to my problem for PHP not working. In Xampp Both the apache
and mysql show "running" and Phpmyadmin status displays this:
Component
Status
Hint
MySQL database ACTIVATED
PHP ACTIVATED
HTTPS (SSL) ACTIVATED
Common Gateway Interface (CGI) DEACTIVATED
Server Side Includes (SSI) ACTIVATED
Tomcat Service DEACTIVATED
PHP Code:
<?php
// error_reporting(0);
error_reporting(E_ALL E_NOTICE); 
mysql_connect('localhost','root',' ');
mysql_select_db('test') or die("Unable to select database");
$query="SELECT * FROM testable Where id='$id'";
$result=mysql_query($query);
$num=mysql_numrows($result);
echo 
date("m/d/Y") . "<br />";
echo 
"<font size=+2><b> test<br /><br />";
echo 
"<table cellspacing=1 cellpadding=0 border=0>
        <tr>
    <TH>target</TH>
    
    <tr>
    <TH>=======================================================================</TH>
    </tr>"
;
while(
$row mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
echo 
"<tr>";
echo 
"<td>" $row['target'] . "</td>";
echo 
"</tr>";
echo 
"</table>";
mysql_close();
?>
this is the result from the little php execution:
"; echo " test
"; echo ""; while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) { echo ""; echo ""; echo ""; echo "
target
=========================
" . $row['target'] . "
"; mysql_close(); ?>
