Default PHP A begginers tutorial problem?

Hey, I was going throught your PHP - A Beginners Guide tutorial and I dont know if i missed something or what but from part 5 to part 6 there is a gap. Part 6 starts out by saying "now that you have sucessfully coded info.php" and shows 2 new .php files in the directorys that were made. Maybe a link got messed up or something or maybe I am missing something. I just loved the tutorial and really wanted to finnish it but with that I can go no further. Please help me out and message me on here or on AIM.

ok i have a coding question now. I am on part 7 toward the end when you go to preview the dwc.php file to see if it worked and Dreamweaver has a pop up that says "To preview pages containing server-side code, you need a testing server. Would you like to specify one?" and when I click Yes it makes me create a whole new web site. What should i do?

create a blank page. name it info.php

in the page add the following line...

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

save the file in your local and remote directory

browse the file in your browser using...

http://localhost/Test/info.php

post what you see in the page
