PHP Pages Only Ask to Save the File

Msg#: 4235510 posted 3:57 am on Nov 27, 2010 (gmt 0)

Hey, I followed this tutorial here:
and I've done it twice now and checked everything, but PHP simply wont work and only asks to save the PHP file when using Apache.
So, what else is there to do? Am I missing something?

For future reference wamp makes life easier installing apache, mysql and php on your windows box.


Sorry I can't help you any more. Don't know much about windows as a webserver.

This would indicate that PHP is not being invoked, and the server-side script file content is simply being sent verbatim to the browser. Please see the tutorials in our PHP server-side scripting forum for instructions on installing PHP as a module or as a CGI (whichever your server supports).

I'd suspect you've installed it "the wrong way" for the method that your server actually supports.
