Iceweasel Can't Handle PHP Files?


I am attempting to install phpBB3 forums on my Debian PC and have installed the following:

- Apache
- libapache2-mod-php5
- MySQL
- PHP5

Now when I go to the directory via HTML browser (Iceweasel) where I extracted phpBB3 into, I get the following window which does not know how to handle a PHTML file. When I attempted this on a RHEL / CENTOS server, Firefox auto loaded the page and allowed me to do the web based installation of the phpBB3 forums.

Am I missing something?

This seems more of an apache configuration problem, than something wrong with iceweasel. Apache isn't recognising the PHTML file as PHP. Since its not a valid extension.

You'll wna to add phtml to the extension for http something like this:
Code:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .phtml
in your httpd.conf will help. Look for where php is already added.

If your using apache2 check the /etc/apache2/mods-available/php5.conf and php5.load, and run "a2enmod php5" to make sure php is enabled.

Thanks for your response. I was unable to find anything in my apache.conf file which started with "AddType application" so I am assuming I can simply add this to the bottom of the file?

I am using "apache2" so I checked php5.conf & php5.load and I don't really see anything missing. Also ran "a2enmod php5"

Code:
tunafish:/etc/apache2# a2enmod php5
This module is already enabled!
php5.conf

Code:
tunafish:/etc/apache2# cat mods-enabled/php5.conf 
<IfModule mod_php5.c>
  AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml .php3
  AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
</IfModule>
php5.load

Code:
tunafish:/etc/apache2# cat mods-enabled/php5.load
LoadModule php5_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/libphp5.so
Am I missing something?

Ah - I rebooted and for whatever reason it now works...!!!

Perhaps a service or module was not running.

Thank you!
