Problem opening PHP Pages

Whenever I open a PHP page, such as, in Epiphany or Firefox it loads the page in Screem XML/HTML Editor. It won't load the page for me to view. Any clues?

Sounds like a problem with your MIME types, try disabling Screem for being default editor of .php files. This can be done in Firefox under "Options->Downloads" I believe.

I agree it is a mime problem, but I don't see php under the Download->View & Edit options. I just see media extensions there. AVI, MP3, OGG, FLI, etc.

Well I got it fixed by reading some of the similar threads. By deleting ~/.mozilla/firefox/<profile>.default/mime-types.rdf it resets them all, and fixed my problem.

Find any PHP file. Right click it and select Properties. Click the open with tab and you'll be able to select the default application for that mime type. Use the +Add button if the application you want is registered for that mime type.


epiphany, firefox, linux, php, ubuntu
