Are you sure you have the SmartPill plug-in installed?

Check your Preferences dialog -> Plug-Ins tab to verify that one of "PHP", "PHP_Intel", "PHP_68k" is listed.

Thanks, Mark for the quick response. We don't have it. Looks like I would need to purchase the plugin from SmartPill.

I'll look into it.

Thanks again,
