i have setup the Diretory entry and other entry to properly point to the paths

when is browse to the parent path it shows a directory listing of all the files.

i have chmod 755 the .php file

ScriptAlias is set to cgi and php

php module is loaded

the php script is of squirrelmail web based mail and rest of teh settings (qmail, apache, courrier, vpopmail, vqadmin and qmailadmin are working correctly) are ok

I am lost

I cannot remember now the errors I got but I could not get php to work on Slack 9.1. Neither can I remember exactly what I did to fix it but I am fairly sure it was to uncomment this line right near the end of /etc/apache/httpd.conf :

Include /etc/apache/mod_php.conf

This is line 1065 in mine.

Good luck.
