Apache 2.0 and PHP


This is a newbie question :-)

I am installing Apache 2.0 with PHP.

I am having problems and have a strange issue the following works:

<? phpinfo(); ?>

but the following does not work. the source code appears on the page as
if it is not being processed.

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

I read in a newsgroup to try the second. I am wondering if this could some how be part of my problem. any ideas why the second line does not work.

Mysterious. The opposite has always been true for me where only the long form works. Check the config files of both apache and php.

What do i look for ? Apache is set up to look for files that end in php and what should the php.ini file contain ?

Thanks

You may also try re-formatting your code.. to be on 3 lines instead of 1.
ie:
<?php
phpinfo();
?>

I'm not sure why, but I've seen this actually work when your problem was occuring on one of my machines.

Hello,

What is the output of this <?php phpinfo(); ?> on your computer?
Could you give more details (error message for instance)?

As i mentioned above, the only thing that appears on the page within the browser is the php code. It is as if apache didnt process the code as php, but rather displayed the source as if it was contained within an html page.

Also, I did try breaking the source across three lines.

this seems to be the relevant section of php.ini

; Allow the <? tag. Otherwise, only <?php and <script> tags are recognized.
; NOTE: Using short tags should be avoided when developing applications or
; libraries that are meant for redistribution, or deployment on PHP
; servers which are not under your control, because short tags may not
; be supported on the target server. For portable, redistributable code,
; be sure not to use short tags.
short_open_tag = On

After looking at the ini file and tweaking the code, It works. I think my problem was that i put a space netween the ? and the PHP portion of the tag. At least that was the last thing I fixed and now the pages works correctly. :-)

Thanks !!!!!
