    Problems with first PHP

    I am having problems with get php to show up in my browser. I am using xampp. Heres the code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    <html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">

    <meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

    <title>XHTML Template</title>


    I have tried to connect with or http://localhost, and nothing works. going to localhost shows the me XAMPP saying everything is working. I am typing http://localhost/phpinfo.php in the browser. I am going to look around more to see what I can find but am lost on what to do or check or setup.. lol Thanks for anyhelp.

    Edit--- I did not have files in the htdocs folder so it had no idea were to look.

    localhost displaying the xampp 'successful configuration' screen means everything should be working correctly. What is the name of the file, and where is it located on your machine (the full path)?

    I think I have it for now. When I edit the index file in htdocs it shows up. not the code above but just a simple

    echo "hello";


    I think something was wrong with the one above.
