Hi team. I`ve just started with your tutorials and have the check-php.php up that says "Please set PHP option short_open_tag to true..." etc.

Do I need to edit the php.ini file? If so, how do I open this file in "Textmate" to ammend?

Thanks for your help. I`m pretty new to PHP. Cheers.

yes you will have to edit php.ini. short_open_tags is about line 81 for me. You should just need to find this /php/php.ini file and open it in any text editor never used TextMate so cant provide instructions for that. Do a quick search for short_open_tag and change it to On and you should be sweet.

Thanks for your help Willr.

Here is the solution for Mac users using Textmate to open the php.ini file for editing:

Type in "Terminal" mate /usr/local/php5/lib/php.ini

Line 128 (in the Textmate editor) short_open_tag = On

Thanks again.
