Apache Server setup problem...


I've decided to set up an Apache Server and install PHP 5 into that, running Fedora Core 4. My problem is that (and Im a real noob) I can't find a proper tutorial that actually makes PHP 5 works with the APache server. My Apache server is running, and I can see my HTML code, but not my PHP.

Can you find some nice tutorial or give me a simple description on how to make Apache "aware" of that PHP 5 is installed

Best Regards

Christian Sorensen

How did you install these packages. If you compiled from source, take a look at the docs at for how to configure apache to work with php5.

Did you double check your code... Because when I started to use php, I found that the reason why I couldnt see any of my php files was because of stupid mistakes in my code...
Try this code and save it as phptest.php

<title>PHP Test</title>
echo "Hello World";

If this code works, then everything should be running ok with your server...

Double checking

I thought of the same thing at first, but I've triple checked it, and it works on one of my friends PHP servers, so I can't be my code that is wrong
