Forgive the newbie question, but I'm having problems running my first php script (from the book BYO Database Driven Web Site Using PHP & MySQL, 4th ed.
I've installed WinAmp, and finally gotten the server online. When I load localhost/today.php in Firefox, I get a very brief Download window, then tab after tab after tab of nothing. The URL in the browser address box reads file:///C:/DOCUME~1/DAVIDN~1/LOCALS~1/Temp/today-4.php.
I've checked, and the today.php file is in the appropriate folder (C:\wamp\www).
I know what I'm doing wrong must be simple, but the correction so far escapes me.
Thanks for your assistance.

Try that script, if all is well then it should show you information about your php settings

That didn't work either. I got a Not found error message.
I reinstalled WampServer, and noticed that I never got the WampServer home page (Figure 1.7 from the book); instead, I got the "It works!" message. When I select the Localhost menu item at the top of the WampServer menu, I get the same "It works!" message.
I checked out the help file for WampServer, but my French is not up to the task.
