I'm using 1and1 VPS server (CentOS release 5.2)

Please advice, what is the problem or where I'm doing any thing wrong or how to fix ... :-(

Do you have access to the server's http error log?

You may want to check there for errors.  Most default PHP installations have errors set to not display, but will still log (as they should be).

Look for the "short_open_tag" directive in your php.ini. Change it to a value of "1" to turn it on. You may need to restart Apache.

If you want to display errors without changing your php.ini file, use the following to override in the page scope:

<?php
ini_set('display_errors', 1);
?>

Add this to the top of all the scripts that are involved in the process.  Then run it again and tell us what output you received.
<?php
ini_set('display_errors', TRUE);
error_reporting(E_ALL);
