On the laptop, the original machine, it has Vista, Firefox 3.6.3. Previewing on testing server Apache (XAMPP )on the computer, not network


On the tower, it is running XP Pro, Firefox 3.6.3. Previewing on local testing server.

What is the browser and browser version your using on the bad computer?
What OS?

Are you previewing the file on the computer or from a server?

Thanks for your reply....that wasnt it. File was originated as a php file.

So I have been playing with the experiment, and this is now the total code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd";>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml";>
<head>
<style type="text/css">


body {
 font-size:20px;
 }
</style>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Time Experiment</title>
</head>
<form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];?>" method="post">
I am <input name="age" type="text" /> years old.<br /><br />
<input name="submit" type="submit" value="submit" /><br /><br />
</form>
<body>

<?php
$age=$_POST['age'];

$seconds=1;
$minutes=($seconds*60);//60
$hours=$minutes*60;//3600
$days=$hours*24;//86,400
//$days=$days;
$months=$days*30;//2,592,000

$years=$months*12;
$seconds_old=$years*$age;
$seconds_old=number_format($seconds_old,0,'.',',');
$years=number_format($years,0,'.',',');
$days=number_format($days,0,'.',',');
$months=number_format($months,0,'.',',');

/*Interesting, when I had the number_format of days before the months, the
math was wrong, it returned 2,592
turns out you must reverse the order of the second var for number_format*/
echo "There is $seconds in a second";
echo "<p>There are $minutes seconds in a minute.</p>";
echo "<p>There are $hours seconds in an hour.</p>";
echo "<p>There are $days seconds in a day.</p>";
echo "<p>There are $months seconds in a month.</p>";
echo "<p>There are $years seconds in a year.</p>";
echo "<p>You have lived about $seconds_old Seconds in your life</p>";

?>
</body>
</html>

And this code produces, on the good machine, the tower, this:

I am  years old.




There is 1 in a second
There are 60 seconds in a minute.

There are 3600 seconds in an hour.

There are 86,400 seconds in a day.

There are 2,592,000 seconds in a month.

There are 31,104,000 seconds in a year.

You have lived about 0 Seconds in your life



Same exact code that I just now sent over to the original "bad"  machine,
produces this:




I am  years old.




There are $minutes seconds in a minute."; echo "

There are $hours seconds in an hour.

"; echo "

There are $days seconds in a day.

"; echo "

There are $months seconds in a month.

"; echo "

There are $years seconds in a year.

"; echo "

You have lived about $seconds_old Seconds in your life

"; ?>



Same code, different machines, different results. Notice the closing ?> php
tag is printed.

Like I said, I dont know where to start to look.

Thanks for your reply.

Hi Gary,
It is probably because you have the file named .html and not .php.

I took your code:

<?php
$seconds=1;
echo $seconds;
?>

and put it an a .html and .php file and put it on my server.
With the.php file, I got a result of 1
for the .html file I got a blank screen.

HTH,

Karl

Thank you for your reply, but that is not it.

I took it down to
<?php
$seconds=1;
echo $seconds;
?>

Total code, and got nothing, blank screen.  (this is just a silly
exercise
where I was going to input a date of birth and produce age in seconds)
When
I put the exact same code on my other machine, it showed numbers and
calculations, most important, it showed something at all.

This is an issue with configuration or settings somewhere, or perhaps my
XAMPP is corrupt.

Thank you for your reply.

Gary

What would cause a machine not to read/process php?

I have a laptop that I have been ever increasing using for php
scripting.
 I decided to do a simple experiment, it started out something  like:

$seconds=1;
$minutes=$seconds*60;
$hours=$minutes*60;
$days="$hours*24;

echo $seconds;
echo $minutes;
echo $hours;
echo $days;

-snip-



A text editor with syntax highlighting would certainly help. There's a
double quote " right in front of the $hours variable on the fourth
line.
That's an unterminated string literal, a syntax error, which would
cause
PHP
to abort entirely. Your php's error log probably has a message in it to
this
extent.

The reason why you got a number of different results is probably
because
you
added another double quote further down in later versions.

But if that's somehow not it, post the entire source code of your file
on
a
site like http://pastie.org/ so we can have a closer look.
