    I know this is probably a stupid error but:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /home/nick/public_html/linkwars/phptest.php on line 12

    I can't for the life of me figure out whats wrong. Any help?


    <html>
    <head>
    <title>PHP Test</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    
    <?php
    
    $linkID = mysql_connect("localhost","username","password");
    mysql_select_db("forminfo",$linkID);
    
    <form action="/test/phptest.php" method="get">
    Name:
    <input type="text" name="name"><br>

    Alternatively, you could have just closed off the PHP with ?> before your plain HTML, then start up PHP again with <?php before you start with your PHP code.

    If that makes sense :)

    Yep. It's absolutely right.

    I'd most likely use echo <<<TEXT TEXT; because you can put " and ' without any mistakened errors.

    "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected..." problem again.
    I would be pretty pleased if a solution of the situation should be expressed. As a "Quick Reply" most hopefully.
    I try to open ...kallan.org as the Master site of ...facebook.com
    I achive: "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /web/org/eng.kallan.org/index.php on line 49"
    We have asked Fb members if they get same result but no, just me.
    If I write the www-address (...kallan.org) correct I recive after 'Enter': ...://eng.kallan.org/
    Can't say no more but an explanation would be "Jummy"!
    Anything else needed?

    you probably forgot to put the closing PHP tag ?> before dealing with HTML code

    example:

    
    <?php //starting tag
    //some php code here
    ?> //ending tag
    //some html code here
    <?php //starting tag
    //some php code here
    ?> //ending tag
    //some HTML code here
    
    Code (markup):
    and so on

    I hope this helps

    Use echo statement for regular HTML tags, this will solve the error.

    This is a simple syntax error - make sure you are using a syntax highlighter to view your code (Such as Notepad++ or Dreamweaver). Then you can clearly see where something is in it's wrong place :) However, I recommend Netbeans it will tell of errors AS you type!

    All the errors in this thread, including yours, are basically the same. In yours, find

    header( 'Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8' );
    header( 'Retry-After: 600' );


    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>

    (I see it as lines 150-156 in my editor). Change it to

    header( 'Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8' );
    header( 'Retry-After: 600' );
    ?>

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>

    You're missing a closing tag (?>). "<!DOCTYPE ..." isn't valid PHP syntax.
