On my new Ubuntu system, I’ve managed to get Apache2 up and running for developing my ZendFramework Web Applications…
I’ve got my
available-sites config working correctly because I am able to request
localhost and it servers up the correct
index.html from my specified directory.
Problem : if I request
index.php, firefox attempts to download the file instead of running the script.
Any Ideas why this would happen?
I’ve added the following to
httpd.conf but it hasn’t helped.
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .php5 .php4 .php .php3 .php2 .phtml AddType application/x-httpd-php .php5 .php4 .php .php3 .php2 .phtml
if firefox downloads your php files it means that your server doesnt have php or the apache php module installed.
have you install apache php module?
if not, then install it, by typing this into a terminal:
sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5
and if yes, do you have your index.php located in
Make sure to enable php with the command
sudo a2enmod php5
If you are using userdir (http://localhost/~user/phpinfo.php) you will want to:
<IfModule mod_userdir.c> <Directory /home/*/public_html> php_admin_value engine Off </Directory> </IfModule>
to comment the php_admin_value
<IfModule mod_userdir.c> <Directory /home/*/public_html> #php_admin_value engine Off </Directory> </IfModule>
service apache2 restart
For me, the solution was to create the following 2 symbolic links:
ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/php5.conf /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php5.conf ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/php5.load /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php5.load
and to restart Apache:
http://my_server/test.php file, which has contents:
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
came right up, and the browser didn’t try to download the php file. Didn’t have to restart the browser, either.
You need to enable the PHP extension. Do this with the command
sudo a2enmod php.
I’ll assume you installed PHP already and installed the PHP module for Apache here…
Did you restart apache? If not:
sudo service apache2 restart
Make sure that your httpd.conf file is also being executed. If necessary, restart it after making an edit that would cause an error on load. If it doesn’t fail to restart, it’s not running the .conf file.
If the problem still continues, close your browser, reopen it, and clear your cache. It might be the browser just caching the page response.
I have installed php 7.0 and getting the dailog box. I have installed apache php module for 7.0 version and it fix my problem.
sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-php7.0
