another new-bee in trouble

Post by Robboxxx » Thu Jul 29, 2010 9:59 pm

Hi All

I'm a beginner with freeway, webyep and webdesign in general. Something goes wrong and I don't have a clue what it is (or maybe I don't have a clue what I'm doing at all).

I bought the webyep action plug-in for Freeway (that works fine).
I downloaded webyep demo version (I now that there will be a demo notice until I pay).

I was reluctant to upload my test site to it's webspace because the current website would be deleted and I wanted first to try some things before publishing it. Somebody told me that you could use dropbox for this. Uploading to the public folder and after using the "link" my website would be published in my browser. That works indeed (I tried it with a non-WebYep) site).

I made a test site (a lot actually) with WebYep and whatever I try I get on the upper part of my published website the following message: WebYep message: Error, PHP inactive
The PHP code in this page can not be executed!
Are you launching this page directly form your harddisc (e.g. via Freeway's "Preview in Browser" instead of accessing it via a webserver?
Has this file the correct file extension for PHP scripts? WebYep pages must have the ".php" extension and not ".html" or ".htm"!

Yes, I changed the page from index.html to index.php
I have no clue about what I'm doing wrong........

indeed mamp is much better for testing your webyep site locally (because it is a fully functional webserver, running locally on your machine). thanks max for pointing this out.

@robboxxx you can download mamp from
