I have a php page that is not rendering properly. Just trying to test database connection and the page just shows the code as an output.

all it does is shows all the php code. I have enclosed the code input/output.

I tried to find out what's on the server but info() function didn't run either.
Both code behind and output is the following:
=============================================
<html>
<title>db test</title>
<?php 
$link  = oci_connect('test', 'test', 'myOracleServer'); 
if (!$link) { 
die('Could not connect to Oracle: ' . oci_error()); 
} 
echo 'Connection OK'; oci_close($link); 

?>
<body>

<?php
echo info();
</body>
?>
</html>

Do you have a separate installations of Apache and PHP ? Or you use XAMPP, WAMP etc. ?
Seems like Apache couldn't find your php engine.

Read this for a proper configuration of apache with php installed.
Or you could just install XAMPP to do it for you, there shouldn't be any problems with getting php to work.

If you would decide to run xampp, uninstall apache and php prior to that.
