You will need to show NaviCOPA where the PHP files are located - click on a hotspot below for further information.


NOTE that any pages that use PHP must be given the file extension php eg index.php. The script in such pages will be passed to PHP for processing and the results sent to the requesting browser.


NaviCOPA provides an excellent environment for developing PHP scripts. Changed files can simply be saved across your network to the NaviCOPA server (or of course NaviCOPA can be installed on your desktop machine), and then fetched with a browser for an instant check on them.

If you wish to check on the current features of your installation of PHP, construct a simple file containing one line - phpinfo(); - and fetch that with a browser.
