    Jul 07, 2015 07:19 PM|SLovey|LINK

    PHP is not working right.  My html file asks for a name and then calls
    the PHP will display a "Hello" message.

    What is happening is on the htm page I am putting in my name and hit go
    then the browser shows website/Drop2.php and I get 404 error  saying
    page not found.
    It is like the htm page is not really getting to the PHP file.


    Software loaded and verified
    Win Server 2003
    IIS 6.0
    PHP 5.4
    VC9 x86
    WinCache 1.3
    Visual C++ Redistributable files for X86

    PHP has been tested and works from command prompt
    All FastCGI changes have been made per documentation

    My configuration looks like this
    c:\Inetpub\wwwroot      htm and php file
    c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\PHP    PHP software

    I have installed all the above software, set up the following:
    1.  Extension    .php    c:\Intepub\wwwroot\PHP\ext\php5isapi.dll
    2.  Added index.php to my doucments in IIS
    3.  Added to php.ini both and extension_dir=c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\PHP\ext
            and extension=php_wincache.dll
    4.  Added Web service Extension for PHP ISAPI
    5.  Added to Path - c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\PHP

    Here is htm code for Drop2.htm:
    <h1>Enter your name</h1>
    <form method="post" action="C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Drop2.php">
    <input type="text" name="me">
    <input type="submit">

    here is PHP code for Drop2.php:
    echo "<h1>Hello " . $_POST["me"] . "</h1>";

    If you want to run live on my server try. and click on 3 to execute this code

    Your action path is wrong - C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Drop2.php. You should use http://localhost/Drop2.php. or you could use some IP address, or domain name (if you set such).

    Okay I changed to Localhost in the htm file. but still get 404 error.  I tried putting in the ip of the server but no different.  My server runs on the DMZ of my firewall.  the IP that I mentioned is translated at go daddy to  Could any of that be my problem?
