After much pain last night I finished compiling Apache 1.3.27 from the source, and php v 4.3.2 . I compile libphp4.so via apxs into apache/libexec, and it seems to be working correctly (not generating any errors).
The other module that I compiled into apache was ssl, and it seems to be working correctly, but I cannot get php embedded into my html to work atall. A file such as 'test.php' with the contents:
<?php echo 'Hello world!'; ?>
just displays in the browser when called, rather than being interpreted and returned to it. I have no idea what is going wrong, so any ideas would be very appreciated.
PS: LoadModule php4_module libexec/libphp4.so is in httpd.conf like it should be.
