the server itself is running, but apache doesn't recognize PHP files, it asks me if i want to download them.
i had to reinstall Apache the other day because i made a mess of it while messing about with it.
i've edited /etc/apache2/apache2.conf to add the following:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
and done a graceful restart with apache2ctl but it doesnt seem to work.
i also don't have an .ht* file in any of my dir's that might tell .php files are anything but applicatoin/x-httpd-php files.
i've tried everything i know but nothing works.
either i've forgotten something, or apache is reading another .conf file from somewhere else...but other changes to apache2.conf seem to work.
for example, i enabled the server-status and server-info options in that same conf file, and while server status doesnt seem to work, server-info gives a 403 header (forbidden) even when i run it as root via lynx.
does anyone know if there's an apache tool that i can use which will tell me the order of the conf files being read?
i'm open to any suggestions. i just can't figure out what i've missed out. i've done this a million times before :/
