first to be sure... does the filename of the file form_process.php is wrote all in lower case? because, the include and the filename seams different in your code demonstration (server are case sensitive)... one is form_process.php and the other is Form_process.php

then, try replacing the equal sign (in the action attribute), by an echo instruction

<?= $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>

<? echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>

and also prefer the full opening PHP tag instead of the shortcut .. plus... let a white space in between the opening tag and the first instuction caracter

<?php echo  $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>

Something else to consider:

Are you testing locally or remotely?

If locally do you have a local testing environment set up which parses php files?

If neither of the replies solves your issue then post again and someone will look into the issues you may be having in more depth.
