Distribution: Debian and Fedora Core in equal measure
Installing PHP on Fedora Core 6
I'm building a new apache server on Fedora Core 6, and everything is fine up to the point where I have apache presenting its default page when browsed, and MySQL is installed and happy, and then I tried to install mod-php so I can use php on web pages.
That's where I got stuck...I've done this on Debian before, and just installed the appropriate mod-php, created a test.php file with "php-info" in it, put it in the apache root directory, so when browsing to www."server".com/test.php, I get the full informational page to show all is well.
Well, obviously there is no mod-php installed, 'cos when I browse, I just get the single line that is the file contents, but equally, when I go to the GUI software installer, there's no evidence of any mod-php.
That should be no problem, just go and find a mod-php RPM, I thought....nope! can't find one that looks right...What am I doing wrong here? it was soooo simple under Debian. Kernel is 2.6.19, its a more-or-less default install...
Yeah! I saw just that typo in your post and was about to say about it being wrong. If the <?php opening tag is <? or wrong, some browsers just interpret it as text. If think there is an option that can be changed in the php.ini somewhere, as you should be able to just use <? echo ... ?>
But I always use <?php ... ?> for completeness :-)
