It seems that .php files are considered ordinary files and not being parsed by PHP. To resolve this, you need to modify your Apache httpd.conf file. At the bottom of the file and the following libes of directives. (Before adding, search the entire file and modify it) LoadModule php5_module "location/of/your/php/module"AddType application/x-httpd-php .php Restart your Apache server. Then test.

It seems like you're trying to run PHP files by double clicking on them... Do NOT start PHP files like that.Open your browser, and type "localhost". That is the place from which Apache (and inherently, PHP) runs. All paths must be relative to that.Check this part of the XAMPP FAQ for details.You could also try reinstalling XAMPP, or do the suggested settings above. XAMPP should do these by default.
