Angry phpMyAdmin is not showing properly


I have just installed phpMyAdmin, hoping that I will be able to use it to manage the mySQL. But after installation, I tried running the index.php3, instead of showing me in Graphic mode, it is showing all the codes in php. I have tried to rename it as index.php but it gave error.

I have verified with phpinfo.php that I have installed PHP4.2.2.

What went wrong? How can I configure phpMyAdmin to work?

Please advice!!! Thanks a million!

Actually, I think if you look at the phpMyadmin homepage:

You'll see fairly quickly why But you can (If I'm not mistaken) setup Apache to deal with php3 files instead of installing the .php version.

Look for something like this in your httpd.conf file:
<IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectoryIndex index.html index.php index.php3
And add the php3 like I have above.

However, the easiest way to do this correctly is to use the correct package for your version of PHP:
