[ms4w-users] MS4W 2.0 available

Hi Jeff,
	I follow your instructions and phpinfo.php shows the right info
without problems. I was testing my pages again and found that any php code
used inside the html tag of my pages were not interpreted. I use "<?" and
"?>" tags to write php instructions and code inside the html code. Perhaps
there is something in Apache configuration that I have to change?

I am trying to replicate this, on a fresh machine.  To test I do the

 - create a new folder named "MyPages" in c:/ms4w/Apache/htdocs/
 - copy phpinfo.php into that MyPages folder
 - try to access

This works fine for me.  Checking the Apache conf file
(c:/ms4w/Apache/conf/httpd.conf) that document root folder seems properly
configured (see lines 253-282).

I'm not sure what is happening for you.  So you did not make any changes to
httpd.conf correct?  And you don't have any funky password stuff setup in
your MyPages folder?

Does this same problem happen for you if you place your files in
c:/ms4w/apps/ and create an appropriate conf file in c:/ms4w/httpd.d/ ?
