Finally Apache2 and php 5

hey guys...

After a hard days work, i finally compiled apache2 and php5 to work together..

but now there is another problem. in my directory no index file is there so the browser displays the files in my /var/www/html and when clicked a file the file gets downloaded insted of showing in the broswer. so i placed an index.php and refreshed the browser... it parsed perfectly....

wots going on.. any one can help me...

thanks in advance

Did you follow the PHP install instructions fully? Whilst make install will load the module in your Apache config file, what it doesn't do is to add a handler for the .php extension. You need to put a line like this in your httpd.conf:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

Re-start Apache and you should see the PHP rendered rather than the source. Guess how I know about this ;-)

Note - you also need to copy the sample php.ini to the appropriate place (/usr/local/lib on my machines).
