I tried to do this tutorial: http://www.phpriot.com/articles/complete-prototype-example and whenever I submit the page, I get prompted to download the php file that's triggered for the submit action. PHP is properly installed, the database is receiving the data.

change this on the index.html page

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/prototype.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/Application.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/AddressBook/Creator.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/AddressBook/Contacts.js"></script>
 

*****************CHANGE TO******************

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/prototype.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/Application.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/Creator.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/Contacts.js"></script>

Open in new window

hm I didn't notice my paths were wrong, thank you. but that didn't solve the issue. I even went so far as to place the files so they are in there proper locations, still didn't work. Here's whats odd:

If I have the path src="/js/<file>" I can submit properly and the database gets updated correctly. If I remove the slash src="js/<file>"  then I can see the existing database entries, but the form will no longer update the database.
