http://localhost.com/test.php

Postby gma_raj » Mon Apr 21, 2003 10:51 pm

Hi All
I relatively new to PHP. Please help. I installed Apache, PHP. Then when I tried to test it by opening a test.php file with just the phpinfo() function in it as follows:

http://localhost/test.php

It doesn't execute the php file which is <? phpinfo(); ?>
instead, sends it for download and when I tried the same with a different filename like test.php3 or test.php4.

http://localhost/test.php3 or
http://localhost/test.php4

it just puts the file content on the browser but doesn't execute the function "phpinfo()"

Please let me know, if I have to change something in the php.ini file.

Thank you
Raj

Apache might not be configured correctly, I don't know...

other than that, I suggest trying different addresses like:
http://127.0.0.1/test.php
or http://<external/internal IP address>/test.php
see if either of those are working.

it shouldnt make a difference whether you use 127.0.0.1 or localhost they are both loopbacks. try reinstalling php, http://www.php.net/downloads.php ... and if that doesnt work, let us know.

Which version have you installed? Is it a clear install of apache or just a full pack like Appserv?
