Wink getting started with php

Hi again people,

I am trying to have a little mess about with php, maybe creating a website for my cricket club eventually.

I am having trouble setting things up...

I think i have apache installed and httpd seems to be running...

php is also installed i think...

i types the following into a file which i called phptest.php

print "Hello Web!";

However when i navigate to this file using a web browser (mozilla) it simply displays the text file rather than showing Hello Web! on a blank page. What is going wrong??? I'm sure its just a stupid newbie error but help would be much appreciated.

Thanx Muffamatician

Have you installed php?
rpm -qa | grep php

If so then take a look at httpd.conf and uncomment the LoadModule and AddType lines relating to php.
