    Perhaps your server does not support PHP. Maybe if you provided more information about your situation, like your server info and the php code you've written, someone could possibly help you.

    Well, I'm trying to use it on my HD right now. Just to test if it works but it doesn't seem so...
    I just use a normal echo() command.

    In order to run and test out PHP on your hard drive, you'll need to have it installed locally. Firepage's PHPdev is a great program that installs both PHP and mysql on your home computer for testing: http://www.firepages.com.au

    kind of a stupid question, but does your home computer also need to be a Webserver?

    To test your scripts locally on your HD, you also need a webserver running on your computer. It does not necessarily have to be a webserver that's connected to the internet, the usual "localhost" works just fine.
