  1. Ok I figured it out. I didnt realize that the folders in the web root were case sensitive. So instead of "templates" I named the folder "Templates" and "css" as "CSS". As soon as I exchanged the capital letters for lowercase letters, it worked fine.
  2. ..the filenames are correct I just need to know how to make my PHP script reconize the folders in my web root, as it does the same with the downloaded sript "script08_04"
  3. Hello, I am having a problem with Chapter 8 "Creating Web Applications" pg. 195. While running my "index.php" through my web browser, I get several warning as follows: (It also happens with the downloaded script for this book "script_08_04") Warning: include(header.html) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/87/8276687/html/index.php on line 11 Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening 'header.html' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php') in /home/content/87/8276687/html/index.php on line 11 Welcome to a J.D.

If I put all files in the web root It has no warnings but It doesn't incorporate the CSS file. " It doesn't look like example "D" on p. 195 " I was wondering if anyone knows what these warnings are and how to remedy the problem? Any help would be appreciated.
  4. Thanks for the quick reply Craig-UK, That was the error. Cant believe i missed that, kind of embarrassing
  5. Hello, I am have trouble in Chapter 5 Using Strings - Script 5.2 page 96. I created my php script but I cant seem to get my $last_name to "post" the last name. I get: Thank you, Manasseh last_name, for your posting: I downloaded the script for this excerise and it works but my script doesnt and I was wondering if someone can tell me what I am doing wrong. Im having a hard time distinguishing the difference between the 2 scripts. Books Script: <?php // Script 5.2 - handle_post.php /* This script receives five values from posting.html: first_name, last_name, email, posting, submit */ // Address error management, if you want. // Get the values from the $_POST array: $first_name = $_POST['first_name']; $last_name = $_POST['last_name']; $posting = $_POST['posting']; // Create a full name variable: $name = $first_name . ' ' . $last_name; // Print a message: print "<div>Thank you, $name, for your posting: <p>$posting</p></div>"; ?> My php script: <?php //Script 5.2 - handle_post.php // Display Errors ini_set ('display_errors', 1); error_reporting (E__ALL | E_STRICT); // Assigning Local Varibles $first_name = $_POST['first_name']; $last_name = $_POST['last_name']; $posting = $_POST['posting']; // Concantanating Varible $name = $first_name . ' ' . last_name; print "<div>Thank you, $name, for your posting: <p>$posting</p></div>"; ?> Any input would be appreciated.
