Slackware 12 PHP?
I need a little help. I am running slackware 12 on my laptop , new install and new to slackware, and I am starting to work with html and php. I set up apache and php so I could use them @ http://localhost locally and check what I am working on. html files work just fine. It is php that I am having a problem with. I have php installed and I edited the apache config file in slackware to include mod_php.conf and the Directory Index to include index.php as stated in the documentation I read. I also edited the mod_php.conf to the recommended settings (so I thought). If I run a php web page that I have now working on another server. It shows all the html stuff fine but the php code is in plain text in the background of the page. Also I tried to set a test.php file and that didn't anything at all.

I must be missing something. Any ideas

I know this is probably screamingly obvious, but did you restart Apache after you modified httpd.conf?

Don't worry I don't take offense to that. I have been known to forget a time or two. But to answer your question yes I did restart apache.

OK, then it is time to make sure that PHP is complaining as much as possible. In your php.ini file, make sure that error_reporting is set to E_ALL and that display_errors=On. That should put errors into your Apache log files and display them in your browser. Hopefully that will turn up some clues as to what is going wrong.
