After moving PHP files to /var/www they no longer are seen as hosted php files


I hope I have the right forum. I also did some googling beforehand, but I didn't find anything that helped me.

I am setting up a Demo website that I am hosting in a Debian Lenny VM, I have installed Apache, mySQL, and PHP5 I know the php server is working because if I place an info php file I can see it in the browser. However, I downloaded phpfusion, as well as phpmyadmin and they are on my desktop, I open a superuser file browser (also added write access to /var/www to everybody and copied the files over as me) and copied over the files. Once in the www folder they are no longer seen as "valid" php files, if I try to access them with iceweasel, IE, Konquerer it asks me if I want to download the file. If I look at the files on my desktop they have different icons. I have attached a screenshot. I can't tell what the difference is, but obviously there is one otherwise the icons wouldn't be different. Does anyone have any idea what's going on here or a way to rectify it? I have done things like this before without issue, I've never seen this problem.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Screen shots of file browsers don't provide very useful information.

Please post the output of:
Code:
ls -l /var/www
Different themes probably have different icons.... file browsers should be avoided when trying to do real work.

Also, please check your apache logs.

Here is the ls -l /var/www output. I understand different themes and different DE will use different icons, however, notice that in the left windows all the files have the php icon, in the second with a different theme, one of the documents has the same icon but all the others have gone into like a text document preview mode. I will take a look at my apache config and post it as well in a proceeding post. I have never had an issue like this before.

Code:

The icons are irrelevant, perl scripts looks like that on my system. Or bash scripts.


What's in /etc/apache2/conf.d/
and in /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

If the directory isn't set up correctly it won't serve php from it.
is this in httpd.conf too ?
Code:
AddType text/html       php
or

Code:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml .php3
You don't seem to have a info.php file in the files directory, have you tried it ?

If you're worried about that _config file, delete it and copy a new one over.

Those configuration lines are in files in the conf.d directory. But now the plot thickens. I haven't done anything to the system but now I can't even access anything, I get a 403 forbidden trying to access anything in a browser.

you need to make a config for your php site and put it in /etc/apache2/sites-available/
then symlink it to /etc/apache2/sites-enabled

an example of a config would be /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

you can take that site and modify it then rename it to whatever then symlink it from /etc/apache2/sites-available/newsite to /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/newsite

It wasn't a new site it was part of the demo site I was putting together. But after I played with permissions and they all seemed to be ok, but I still got a 403 forbidden access error on every page I tried to access I just reinstalled the VM and none of these problems are occuring now. Thank you all for the help you provided though.
