How to include php headers and footers on html site

  • # August 26, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    Add a root password and see if that changes anything.

    What error did it display?

    did you get a 500 error, or a PHP error message?

    I added a root password but it didn’t change anything, here is the error message I’m getting:

    @hrechkaness What happens when you go here? http://localhost:8888/phpinfo.php

    Are you also putting the files you’re working on inside htdocs?

    # August 26, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    I get this text

    Not Found

    The requested URL /phpinfo.php was not found on this server.

    # August 26, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    Is that file located in htdocs?

    # August 26, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    The only thing I have located in my htdocs so far is index.php, stylesheet.css, header.php

    # August 26, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    Move phpinfo.php inside htdocs and see if that solves it

    # August 26, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Do I have to create a phpinfo.php file or is there an already existing one that came with MAMP?

    # August 26, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    @hrechkaness Follow this tutorial and reload Mamp. Then take a screenshot of the error.

    Will do, I’ll post back once I’ve finished the tutorial

    # August 27, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    Alright, I finished the tutorial but it turns out, that wasn’t the answer to my problem. It was directly related to my header code. If I had listened to your advice in the beginning and changed it to the doc type to html5, I’m sure I wouldn’t be having this problem. Here is the code I had to delete to make my page run smoothly.

    < ?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    Thanks for all your help. I’ll post back if I’m having any other issues but it looks like it should be smooth sailing from here. Cheers!

    The tutorial would have allowed us to see where the problem was, not immediately solve it. Glad it’s now working.

    How can I include header & footer if my content page is inside sub folder. Could you plz tell me what script i’ve to use if my pages inside folder / sub folder. so far i know and see here:
    < ?php include 'header.php'; ?>
    if my pages without folder.

    You can go inside subfolders with `include ‘subfolder/header.php’` or inside parent folder with `include ‘../header.php’`
