We're going to need a little more information than that I'm afraid. – Will Vousden Apr 20 '10 at 8:18
1+ for the quick comment. @tibin mathew you will have to provide us with more details. – Adnan Apr 20 '10 at 8:19
Are you getting 404? 503? or what? – Rosdi Apr 20 '10 at 8:21

Maybe it is just the php file you are testing?

Write a simple php file:

echo 'Hello World?';

Store it in a folder that you can access on your localhost like in htdocs/index.php or similiar. Check if you can see it.

True, if error reporting is off and there is a fatal error in the PHP, it will just show a blank page and "not load" – Carson Myers Apr 20 '10 at 8:34

sound like you need to install php in your system.

Are the grayed out users from and that is why they are gray? Seems like they may be disabled accounts. Could get confusing.... – Campo Apr 20 '10 at 19:59

The fact that tomcat can run asp is really interesting. My hunch is if asp pages are working, then probably your IIS is taking care of the requests instead of Tomcat. And you should be focusing on IIS PHP configuration instead of Tomcat configuration.

I don't think Tomcat is involved at all, why run PHP under Tomcat when you can run it directly under IIS? – Rosdi Apr 20 '10 at 8:45
Exactly .. the details provided include "I am using windows 2000 advanced server and my web server is Tomcat" .. so something doesn't add up there correctly. – Sabeen Malik Apr 20 '10 at 8:47
