I am unable to figure this issue out and it is driving me up a wall. I am trying to write code for a members only area for my webpage, but the PHP code that I am using keeps showing when I go to the page.

1) I originally saved the file as a .PHP, and *NOT* an HTML.
2) I have tried restarting my server.
3) I tested the .PHP compatibility of the server using a "hello" PHP code which DID show up when I ran it.
4) I tried running the website using "localhost/member/index.php" (index.php was located in root folder) and going to the my main website and calling upon index.php, but it still did not work
5) I am not loading it up as a file:/// using Chrome or IE
5) I tried re-saving the .php file to .php

Software:
WIndows 2012SE
IIS 8.0 webserver
PHP 5.3.28
PHPmyadmin 4.4.4
MySQL 5.5.43 - Community Server (GPL)

Code:

Do you have the short_open_tag option enabled on your server? You'll need it be enabled for your code to work, or you'll need to replace your short tags with full <?php tags. Once enabled you can replace your "<? echo ..." with the short echo tag "<?= ..." as well. Alternatively you can upgrade to PHP 5.4 and then the short echo tag works without the short_open_tag option.
