how to connect php to html
ChezCoder (1588)

how can I connect a PHP file to an HTML,CSS,JS web file?
I tested it on PHP web but it just runs the PHP even without clicking the submit button...
can I just set the ACTION attr on an HTML input element to the link of the REPL php?:

<form action='replink.php' method='post'>
           <input name='test'>
           <input type='submit'>
</form>

1) You need to be using the PHP Web template
2) Form code needs to be on the index page
3) Another page can pick up the submitted code using the $_GET or $_POST superglobal arrays

Have a look at this example: https://repl.it/@malvoliothegood/php-and-forms

I don't think PHP works well with repl.it as of now. They're planning on getting it to work in the future.

@Vandesm14, it is now replit.com :)
