Question Dynamic webpages with php code displays blank from Fedora


My company recently switched from using Redhat 7.1 for file servers to using Fedora Core 4.

We basically use the servers only to store information on and run a website for RF units from. Everything on this website runs fine from RedHat, but when I open the page from Fedora I only get a blank page. I have an Apache server running (version 2.0.54), but I think I might be missing a RPM or something.

I am new to Fedora and would appreciate any help or links provided.

There's not a lot of info there, and it sounds like a server setup issue, which isn't really my area of genius , but here's a couple of questions that might help:

Firstly, it's also possible that the PHP module of Apache hasn't actually been installed on your Fedora box, so you should probably check that it's installed and enabled. (ie not just Apache, but mod_php as well, and any other php bits you might need as well, like session support, etc)

If that's all okay, then check that your server's mime types are set up to tell it to execute PHP programs when it sees files with a .php extension (or whatever extension you're using).

Beyond that, I don't really know enough about Apache config to say any more, but I hope those questions will be of some help.

All the best.

I've found the problem. We had a MySQL issue with the new version and the guy responsible for SQL uninstalled a php rpm and never told me. Now I just have to figure out what rpm it was, but the best would probably be to install Apache from start?

Thanks for the advise.
