[PHP] How do I view PHP pages??


I installed php4, mysql, apache2 but when i try to open a file, sm_install.php, it opens it but it looks like its in source code view. In fact, i know it is. Im just opening it through the browser. Any suggestions? Im using SuSE 8.1.

Some said this when i asked them else where:

"PHP needs to be installed and setup through Apache, otherwise it wont parse correctly."

Is that true? If so, How would i do this?

Code:
LoadModule php4_module        lib/apache/libphp4.so
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
Make sure you have the lines above in your httpd.conf and restart httpd.

That didn't really work for me so i reinstalled the OS. I like it now. I went back to apache 1.3.x and php4 and it works really nice now. Ive heard apache2 is in experimental phases right now.

Thanks for the help.

I think it's a bit farther than experimental...but the php webpage warns against using the 2.x series apache. I use the 1.3 myself and it works great with php.

I have run apache 2.0.4x series with PHP ( for about 8-9 months, if I remember right ) and haven't found a single hitch. Inorder for PHP to work with Apache 2.x, you have to configure it with the corresponding apache extenstions. Are you sure you enabled it?

Here's my PHP config.

./configure \
--prefix=/usr \
--exec-prefix=/usr \
--bindir=/usr/bin \
--sbindir=/usr/sbin \
--sysconfdir=/etc \
--datadir=/usr/share \
--includedir=/usr/include \
--libdir=/usr/lib \
--libexecdir=/usr/libexec \
--localstatedir=/var \
--sharedstatedir=/usr/com \
--sysconfdir=/etc \
--mandir=/usr/share/man \
--infodir=/usr/share/info \
--with-apxs2 \
--enable-so \
--enable-discard-path \
--enable-force-cgi-redirect \
--with-config-file-path=/etc/ \
--enable-libgcc \
--with-zlib \
--with-bz2 \
--with-dom=/usr/lib \
--with-dom-xslt=/usr/lib \
--with-dom-exslt=/usr/lib \
--enable-ftp \
--with-mysql=/usr \
--enable-sysvsem \
--enable-sysvshm \
--enable-wddx \
--enable-share \
--enable-openssl \
--enable-trans-sid
