Ok, I am really stuck and I need help badly.

If I create any file or folder on the server and run the php file it
works with no problem.  As soon as I copy a website from another
server onto this one none of the php code works and the browser only
shows the actual php code.

Is there a permission I need to set?  I have never had this problem
before. The fil4es I am copying from a Win2000 server to the new 2003
server and anything I copy from 2000 to 2003 the PHP code WILL NOT

I do not know what the problem is and I searched the web to find

I am ready to reformat the entire system and put on Windows 2000
server  Please HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Kev,

well it certainly sounds like  a permissions problem,
the best way to tackle it is to take a look at the security setting of a  
file that does work, and see what is missing on the one that doesn't work.

It will undoubtedly be related to the execute attribute which the 2003 file  
will have set to something that scopes the webserver, while the 2000 file's  
permissions do not include the webserver.

You didn't say which webserver you are using, IIS is in my opinion as user  
friendly as a bag of razor blades unless your are running a Microsoft only  
installation, but you cant be if you are running PHP !,
 Id throw IIS away and run Apache if I had the option.
