PHP issue, I think?


Recommended Posts

I tried to search for this, but came up empty. If there is a post with this topic I apologize. Anyway, I have ftp'd catalog into the folder and type in the www.domain.com/catalog/install but instead of a page for installation, I get a pop up that says "You have chosen to open, which is a: application/x-httpd-php from: www.domain.com. And it asks me to save or open it. What am I doing wrong? I've tried from firefox and IE at home as well as both at work and I get the same thing regardless. If that helps at all. Thanks guys!

I'm actually using a Ubuntu server with webmin and virtualmin. I think I do have php, only because when I go to command line and apt-get install php5, it says suggested packages php-pear and then it says it will remove apache2-mpm-worker and install apache2-mpm-prefork libapache2-mod-php5 php5 php5-common. I don't want to mess with apache, but if I should do this then I will. Any suggestions?

PHP is not installed on your server.


That problem cannot be dealt with here. There are specialist forums for people trying to self-manage their own servers. If you Google for them you'll find the links you need.
