.php files not opening properly in Mint
I have a LAMP server configured in Mint 12 and am trying to write basic PHP scripts (still learning the code). Whenever I try to open a .php file or the html tries to execute a script, the "not sure what program to open this extension window" pops up, as if it's trying to save the .php file instead of run it.
I'm not all that experienced with the LAMP configuration or PHP. is this something wrong with the code, how Apache is configured, how Firefox is configured, or some combination therein? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated
