Man, he was just asking a simple question, no need to criticize every
little aspect of etiquette. Please allow me to be a hypocrite and
critique your criticism:
1) If his question gets buried in Yui's thread, no big deal, no one
will answer and he will ask it again in a few days. If someone does
answer, no second email needed. No harm, no foul.
2) No, the confidentiality notice is not *necessary* according to a
strict definition. However, many people that work in the 'real world'
actually have *no* control over this as it is automagically added to
the end of every email leaving their email servers, **regardless** of
user-settings. This is server-side code, not client-side. No harm, no
And yes, as you can probably tell by now, I don't have a problem with
top posting either. I apologize if I have offended someone.
Nevertheless, no need to point me to the Usenet diatribes... you
won't sway me.

1. Clint - Don't hijack threads. Some people use threaded mail
clients, and your "getting started" will end up under Yui's thread.
2. Is it *necessary* to have a confidentiality notice that's just
about equal in bulk to your message? If it's part of a canned sig,
why not create a little simple one for this list.
On to your question. Since you don't have all the code posted here,
I suspect something is going on earlier in the file. Maybe you have
an opening PHP tag, and a line without a semi-colon to terminate it.
Why not try again, with just a single line file:
<? phpinfo(); ?>
Once that works, then expand it.
