Hi,

Not so long ago i was creating websites using PHP. Now when i click on a PHP link on a HTML page in the wwwroot directory the page doesn't open it asks me what i would like to open the PHP file up with, Like Dreamweaver or whatever. This link should take me to the next screen and not open up the file,

Thanks for your time,

Double check that are accessing the files through HTTP (address starts with HTTP in the browser) and not local access (C:\mysite\mypage.php)

To run php pages you need a server which is capable of running PHP. For that you should install PHP.
