help setting up Apache
Hello everyone :P
I am trying to setup a webserver.Everything is awesome except one thing I see php files as text when i try to view them with the browser.
I uncommented the line to enable php,I checked if the module was there,but i still can not see php files.
I have slackware 12.0,and I am a total noob when it comes to apache.
How can i fix this???:confused:
Thanks in advance:)
Check to see if you have the following entries. In your httpd.conf file add to Directory Index: index.php Add '.httpd-php .php' to Add Type Application - near bottom of file. Set Document Root to /var/www/htdocs. In /etc/apache there is a 'php.ini' file. need /var/www/htdocs entered for doc_root.
I check everything and everything was there,but there is a small problem whenever I try to view anything I get a
Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server.
How can this happen last week it was working fine(except the php files).
Do you know how to fix this??
thx in advance
If you made any of these changes, you need to re-start apache.
Did you create the info.php file? If not, open a text editor and type the following in it: <?php phpinfo();?>
Save it as info.php in your /var/www/htdocs directory and also a copy in your public_html directory in your home directory. Try accessing it in the /var/www/htdocs by opening a browser and entering: http://localhost/info.php
If that doesn't work (probably won't) open the browser and enter the following:
http://localhost/~javelin93/info.php (change javelin93 to whatever your actual username is. If this works you should get a lot of information which might help resolve the problem.
When you added .httpd-php .php to Add Type Application, did you put the period (.) in front and a space between?
Not sure if this will help. Are you saying that now you are unable to access anything on apache or just not php files?
I restarted apache,but i get the same thing(403 forbidden).
oh I cannot access anything
