PHP4 didn't work

Postby Martin67 » 2005-01-22 19:05

I have a very simple question ... i hope :)

I have have installed PHP4 with the next command line:

# apt-get install php4 php4-mysql php4-imap php4-gd mysql-client mysql-server

And when i try to check if it works with a file (info.html):

<title>PHP info</title>
<h1>Informatie over PHP</h1>

Then it returns only the header.

What have I made wrong?

I think you need libapache-mod-php4 or libapache2-mod-php4 (if you don't want to run php as cgi, don't know how that works though...)

Per default php only works on files with .php filename extension (to prevent just every file being delivered by apache from being processed) - if you want it to work on .html files too you may have to tweak your apache config file.

This problem is so simple it is alsmo ridiculous.

Unless you have a handler added to parse .html files as php (You don't, trust me), then your file NEEDS to be saved as .php.

That's it.

hi Martin,
Did you get it working, I am facing a similar problem. My Apache2 cannot parse php files. I have installed php4 as a cgi and dont know how to configure Apache to parse those files.
Please let me know if you solve your problem. TIA :)
