I am learning PHP/MySQL by following along in a book. I followed the instructions to install Apache Server, PHP5 and MySQL. Everything seems to be set up properly.

The first couple of scripts worked fine - the output was as expected. When I got to scripts that had the HTML calling an external PHP script, I found that they worked in IE immediately, but they do not work in Firefox until I reboot my computer. I don't get any error messages, just a blank page.

Im am running Firefox 1.07, Apache 2.0.55 and PHP 5.1.1.
Any suggestions? Thanks.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, jdkuehne.

No, actually it is usually the other way around, I have problems with IE not clearing the cache correctly. Perhaps you can offer more details on what is happening and folks might be able to respond.
