you have to run php file directly from browser rather than clicking on preview mode.

run this url in your browser :


please make sure your wamp server is online. you have to check it by clicking on system tray icon from right side icon..

Hi sir,

Thanks.Please i try following your advice and instruction but it was still not working.

But you made mention that i must be sure the wampserver is in online.

Now when i place my mouse on the wampserver it display WAMPSERVER-server offline.but when i right click on the wampserver icon and i click on put online,then it displays...could not execute menu item(internal error)[exception]could not service action.The service has not been started.

And a moment it turns to WAMPSERVER-server online when i place the mouse on the icon...but when type http://localhost/text.php on the browser directly it give me blank preview...Now when i open the www root directy and i preview the same text.php file with mozilla firefox,it display the original code as i stated above.

Please i belief you can help solve this problem.Help me and God will bless you.

Thanks.Clement Osei
