    why can i run an "yt.php" script from a browser, ie, (https://www.yt.php) but not from my hdd, ie, (file://c:\yt.php) ?

    The yt.php script works (and returns the forms results) in my regular Chrome/Firefox/IE browsers and my custom made browser (its just a browser to view html/php content), but when I issue it like this "file://c:\yt.php" the page displays but when I enter something into the forms input box, the page does not return anything, but keeps asking me to enter something. It blinks and that is it.

    What do i need to do to make it work from my hdd ? I guess it doesn't have to be from my hdd. But since I am testing the script, from my hdd, it shouldn't matter where its coming from.

    I am analyzing a php script to try and see if it is something that I can use in a custom tool I may write.

    I think the correct question is,

    ¿why aren't you running a real HTTP server at 127.0.0.1?

    Yep. Install something like XAMPP, https://www.apachefriends.org/index.html . Apache and PHP.

    Yip.

    I develop my own website using php/MySQL. Could not test a thing without a local Apache Server.

    If you check that code carefully chances are it sends the info from the input box in a form to another php script that does the analysis and then returns that to the original page from a reload of it. Or it could do the same with javascript so the page does not reload.
