PHP files unrecognized by Apache after upgrade -- Need help reconfiguring

I recently did an Apache 2.0 upgrade via synaptic. Once upgraded, PHP files were no longer recognized.

So I removed and reinstalled Apache 1.3.3 and reinstalled the PHP-module for Apache 1.x after removing 2.0.

But PHP files continue to be unrecognized by the Apache webserver. The browser tries to download them like a binary file and not render them as web pages. Is there any way to get back PHP files rendering by Apache? What config file do I need to edit to get it back running again.

I tried removing the config files and reinstalling a fresh version. But it doesn't seem to help.

Anybody who can tell me which files to edit to get back PHP support? I have the Apache Modules for PHP installed. I just want to know how to reconfigure Apache 1.x to load the module at startup.

Edit /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf (on my Rh9 system, at least) and add this in the "AddType" section:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

and also in the modules section:


Find these section my simply searching for "AddType" and "Modules" in the httpd.conf file.

Restart Apache (/usr/local/bin/apachectl stop then /usr/local/bin/apachectl start) and you should have PHP files recognized and processed once again.

Thanks rylan!

Strangely after a couple of reinstallations I got it working fine. Now there is another problem.

Now PHP says that mysql_connect() command is unrecognized.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mysql_connect() in /var/www/brotherhood_forum/index.php on line 24
This code was working fine before I did the upgrade and now the PHP file (unmodified since that time) gives this error?

Do you think I messed up mysql somewhere? What do you suggest?

Never mind. I solved both problems.

It was a setting in php.ini where the mysql module was not loaded by default. Now it's solved.

That's so weird, I just had the EXACT same issue. But thanks to this thread (and site) I resolved the problem within minutes. Crazy Linux, always keeping us on our toes.
