    Little new to the whole web design scene but here's hoping I get some help!

    I recently received the files from the site I had made that never came to fruition completely, and I was hoping to edit the rest through Dreamweaver; problem is I always get this when I open it:

    Code:
    
    <?php
    /**
     * Requests collector.
     *
     *  This file collects requests if:
     *	- no mod_rewrite is avilable or .htaccess files are not supported
     *  - requires App.baseUrl to be uncommented in app/config/core.php
     *	- app/webroot is not set as a document root.
     *
     * PHP versions 4 and 5
     *
     *  Get Cake's root directory
     */
    	define('APP_DIR', 'app');
    	define('DS', DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR);
    	define('ROOT', dirname(__FILE__));
    	define('WEBROOT_DIR', 'webroot');
    	define('WWW_ROOT', ROOT . DS . APP_DIR . DS . WEBROOT_DIR . DS);
    /**
     * This only needs to be changed if the "cake" directory is located
     * outside of the distributed structure.
     * Full path to the directory containing "cake". Do not add trailing directory separator
     */
    	if (!defined('CAKE_CORE_INCLUDE_PATH')) {
    		define('CAKE_CORE_INCLUDE_PATH', ROOT);
    	}
    
    /**
     * Set the include path or define app and core path
     */
    	if (function_exists('ini_set')) {
    		ini_set('include_path',
    			ini_get('include_path') . PATH_SEPARATOR . CAKE_CORE_INCLUDE_PATH
    			. PATH_SEPARATOR . ROOT . DS . APP_DIR . DS
    		);
    		define('APP_PATH', null);
    		define('CORE_PATH', null);
    	} else {
    		define('APP_PATH', ROOT . DS . APP_DIR . DS);
    		define('CORE_PATH', CAKE_CORE_INCLUDE_PATH . DS);
    	}
    	require APP_DIR . DS . WEBROOT_DIR . DS . 'index.php';
    
    I already configured my extension files and others but I still get this no matter what.

    Had to delete a few lines regarding the cakePHP website and such since it wasn't allowing me to post it.

    Hope someone can help!

    You can rename the .ctp files to .php and open them in dreamweaver... make sure you are in code / design view... or split. And make sure you followed the directions completely for opening .ctp files...

    Code:
