I am new to web development and I want to run a PHP script on my providers server but when I upload any files that end in .php all I see is a blank page.  Is there any way that I can tell if they are running PHP and if so, what version it is?

Thank you.

If any php files you are uploading are showing up as blank pages it would be safe to assume that the server does not have PHP installed on it, but a surefire way to find out is to create a php file with the following in it...

<?php

   phpinfo();

?>

That will display all of the information about php, including the version number, if it is installed on the server.

It still shows up blank so I guess it doesn't have PHP installed.

Thank you for the quick response.
