    PHP not working

    Hi Guys,


    I have the economy Linux hosting with GoDaddy and have got html code working but php code does not run. The code will run on other web servers but not with GoDaddy, When running the .php file I am returned with a blank screen. Has anyone else had this problem? if so could you please tell me if you've been able to fix it.

    Hi @Tantami, thanks for posting.

    Have you tried a very simple php script, such as a php info page? If you can't get any PHP to work, I suggest contacting Support so they can review your account in detail.

    If you're receiving a blank screen when using a PHP file. It is likely that file contains errors in the GoDaddy hosting environment.


    I would recommend you check your error_log for further details or as previously suggested. Try putting a very basic PHP file in (such as phpinfo()) to test the water.


    Don't forget to encase your PHP code with proper begin/exit tags (<?php #code ?>) to ensure proper functionality.

    Rename index.html to index.php
