Getting phpED to work

I have just started using phpED and I'm having trouble.  

When I run in phpED:

<?php
    echo "Hello World";
?>

It displays:

Hello World

As it should.  But when I open the file(file:///C:/testing/hello_world.php) in FireFox, it simply displays as a text file:
<?php
    echo "Hello World";
?>

How to I get it to process the php?  Any ideas?

That is correct behavior.  The PHP interpreter runs thru a web server, in your case, one included in phpED.  When you open it as a file, there is no server to know it should be interpreted by the PHP interpreter.

You must have a web server to execute PHP code in your browser.  You can run PHP from the command line but that will be a 'DOS' window, not a browser.

So there's no way I could call the file from a Visual Basic WebBrowser Control?

No, I don't think so.  You can set up IIS to run both ASP.NET and PHP and you might be able to do it there.  But you can't call it as just a file and have it work.

Just to reiterate, like you said, it can be run from the command line successfully.

And what do you mean by that?  There is nothing in this question about running anything from the command line.
