If I have a php file called /path/file.php and I want to add a line of code within an existing htm file how would I add that line within the htm file so people can use the form when they visit the htm site? Also, how can I tell if my server supports php files?

hi, if you do: <?php include "folder/file.php";?> that should call the form page into the HTML.

Your server host can tell you that information if you log into your control panel and look at the package info.

Is your server supports PHP then you should be able to find it out by asking the hosting provider OR login to CPanel (or hosting panel) and see if it supports PHP

Or other simply works ... try renaming your index.htm to index.php and access it from browser. If it shows exactly like the html looks then your server should be support PHP.

All your PHP files can be accessed from browser with a HTM extension if you want (with modification in HTACCESS file).

Now... pls check is your server supports PHP first then let us know.

regards...

Hey... as you said you renamed index.cgi to index.php and it only showed raw code on the webpage then your server might support PHP.
To be more sure, try renaming a working HTML file to PHP (not cgi or anything else).

Or try to create a new file name 'whatever.php' and fill this:
<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Open in new window


Access it from browser and let me know...
