Hi folks,

I have a client running Windows 2003 server, and he has installed MySQL and PHP and is runnign a number of apps with taht technology.

I have installed a very simple script taht pulled tha news item from the database and displays it on the front page, linked to the news page.

That works fine. But when the user clicks the item, it returns a 404 page not found. I am sure the coding is right, and the news1.php is in place. Is there some reason that, due to the PHP sitting on an IIS server, that would cause the 404?

Here's the code I am using:


$query = "select * from al_news
order by ItemID desc limit 3";

$results=mysql_query($query) or die (mysql_error());
while ($rows=mysql_fetch_array($results))
$a = $rows;

if (isset($a)) {
echo "<img border=0 src=images/news.gif width=53 height=18><br><br>";
}else {echo "";}?>


$Title =$row['Title'];
$Content =$row['Content'];
$ItemID = $row['ItemID'];

$query = "select * from al_news
order by ItemID desc limit 3";

$results=mysql_query($query) or die (mysql_error());
while ($rows=mysql_fetch_array($results)) {
extract ($rows);
echo "::&nbsp;";
echo "<a href='news1.php?ItemID=$rows[ItemID]'>";
echo stripslashes($Title);
echo "</a>";
echo "<br>";
echo "<br>";

ANY help would be appreciated.
