PHP Help

Post by rpierce » 2024-03-31 04:14

Hi Fellow AppGini Users,
I have a question that is more of a PHP technical question rather than an AppGini specific one. However, the data I'm working with is from my AppGini application and is a simple (seemingly) effort to improve the output of a PHP table.

I'm simply trying to add row numbers to the table produced from data in one of the tables. I thought I had it figured out. When using Xampp it works great. But when I run the same php code on the real server the numbering skips the first record. I have included the php code and a screen shot illustrating the first record without numbering. This forum has always helped me solve problems and I am hoping someone has a suggestion or two.

The people who will be viewing this file have no access to my AppGini application so I can't really use that interface to illustrate this data.

This seems so simple but I don't know where else to look for help.

Thank you as always!
