</head>

<body>

<?php

echo "<h1>Hello " . $_POST["username"] . "</h1>";

hello... finally i got solution for my problem. but still i am little bit confused.


<html>
<head>
<title>Form</title>
</head>
<body>

<h1>Enter your name</h1>

<form method="post" action="handler.php">
<input type="text" name="username">
<input type="submit">
</form>

</body>
</html>

firstly i saved this as a html file and thats why it was showing that problem that i asked earlier. but now i saved it as a php file and it runs properly. but here you have written "The page that contains the form doesn't need to be a PHP file (but it can be)" but when i saved it as HTML file it shows error. so does that mean we can't save it as a HTML file. plz help me and clear my dought...

by default in your xampp settings the page which can execute the php code is only .php files but its optional you can configure your xampp server or any other server to display execute the php code either it is in .html or .asp or .php
that's why its written that its nor necessary that page should be saved in php it could be in any extension or file type i hope you understand what i am talking about
for further reading follow this link
Run php from .html file
Code: Select all
