Hi guys,

Had similar problem with SUSE 11 because it was outdated, so I decided to try the same on my SUSE 12 box. So all I want to do is get dokuwiki on my server, but php has been giving me so much trouble lately. I installed apache, tested it with a few webpages, and that works. I tried to do the same with php, and it wont load through the browser.

I installed php by entering:

Code:
zypper in php5 php5-mysql apache2-mod_php5


Code:
Refreshing service 'spacewalk'.
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...

The following 11 NEW packages are going to be installed:
  apache2-mod_php5 php5 php5-ctype php5-dom php5-iconv php5-json php5-pdo php5-sqlite php5-tokenizer php5-xmlreader php5-xmlwriter

The following 8 recommended packages were automatically selected:
  php5-ctype php5-dom php5-iconv php5-json php5-sqlite php5-tokenizer php5-xmlreader php5-xmlwriter

11 new packages to install.

restarted apache2 as mentioned in the guide:

Code:
service apache2 restart
Then checked my php version:

Code:
php -v
PHP 5.5.14 (cli)
Copyright (c) 1997-2014 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.5.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2014 Zend Technologies

Then created info.php inside /srv/www/htdocs with the code:

Code:
<?php
phpinfo();
?>
Just to verify my php version which I verified earlier through the command line, and the file will not load through the browser when I call on it using http://myservername/info.php

PHP still will not load through my browser, meaning the browser asks to download the file as opposed to just displaying through the browser when i call on it. Any idea on why this is happening? BTW the guide I am referring to is as follows : http://www.itzgeek.com/how-tos/linux...suse-12-1.html

Thanks in advance for you're help guys.
