    Problem installing php5

    I am relatively new to web based development. I recently installed ubuntu 7.10, and apache2. Both installed with no problems. In my browser i am able to type localhost, and i recieve the "It works" page. I can also start,stop and restart with no problems. However, I cannot install php5. I use synaptic package manager to install, and i added the appropriate lines to the httpd.conf file but i still cannot view .php files. I try to run a simple php page and a dialog box pops up prompting me to open or save the file. If i choose either, the box just pops up again. What did i do wrong?

    That would tell me that it's not installed properly or the handlers are missing.

    Can you paste your apache config.

    The following is my apache2.conf also below that is my httpd.conf and my port.conf:

    apache2.conf
    #
    # Based upon the NCSA server configuration files originally by Rob McCool.
    #
    # This is the main Apache server configuration file. It contains the
    # configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
    # See http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/ for detailed information about
    # the directives.
    #
    # Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
    # what they do. They're here only as hints or reminders. If you are unsure
    # consult the online docs. You have been warned.
    #
    # The configuration directives are grouped into three basic sections:
    # 1. Directives that control the operation of the Apache server process as a
    # whole (the 'global environment').
    # 2. Directives that define the parameters of the 'main' or 'default' server,
    # which responds to requests that aren't handled by a virtual host.
    # These directives also provide default values for the settings
    # of all virtual hosts.
    # 3. Settings for virtual hosts, which allow Web requests to be sent to
    # different IP addresses or hostnames and have them handled by the
    # same Apache server process.
    #
    # Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
    # of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
    # server will use that explicit path. If the filenames do *not* begin
    # with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "/var/log/apache2/foo.log"
    # with ServerRoot set to "" will be interpreted by the
    # server as "//var/log/apache2/foo.log".
    #

    ### Section 1: Global Environment
    #
    # The directives in this section affect the overall operation of Apache,
    # such as the number of concurrent requests it can handle or where it
    # can find its configuration files.
    #

    #
    # ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
    # configuration, error, and log files are kept.
    #
    # NOTE! If you intend to place this on an NFS (or otherwise network)
    # mounted filesystem then please read the LockFile documentation (available
    # at <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.1/mod/mpm_common.html#lockfile>);
    # you will save yourself a lot of trouble.
    #
    # Do NOT add a slash at the end of the directory path.
    #
    ServerRoot "/etc/apache2"

    #
    # The accept serialization lock file MUST BE STORED ON A LOCAL DISK.

    LockFile /var/lock/apache2/accept.lock
    #</IfModule>

    # identification number when it starts.
    #
    PidFile /var/run/apache2.pid

    #
    # Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out.
    #

    # one request per connection). Set to "Off" to deactivate.

    #
    # ServerTokens
    # This directive configures what you return as the Server HTTP response
    # Header. The default is 'Full' which sends information about the OS-Type
    # and compiled in modules.

    # Customizable error responses come in three flavors:
    # 1) plain text 2) local redirects 3) external redirects
    #
    # Some examples:

    #
    # Putting this all together, we can internationalize error responses.
    #
    # We use Alias to redirect any /error/HTTP_<error>.html.var response to
    # our collection of by-error message multi-language collections. We use
    # includes to substitute the appropriate text.
    #
    # You can modify the messages' appearance without changing any of the
    # default HTTP_<error>.html.var files by adding the line:
    #
    # Alias /error/include/ "/your/include/path/"
    #
    # which allows you to create your own set of files by starting with the
    # /usr/share/apache2/error/include/ files and copying them to /your/include/path/,
    # even on a per-VirtualHost basis. The default include files will display
    # your Apache version number and your ServerAdmin email address regardless
    # of the setting of ServerSignature.
    #
    # The internationalized error documents require mod_alias, mod_include
    # and mod_negotiation. To activate them, uncomment the following 30 lines.

    Do you mean post a screen shot of files contained w/in? or do you mean post the contents of every file in the mods-enabled file w/ a .load or .conf ext?

    Sorry, didnt realize that OS produced so many seperate files, lets just do this.

    type this command in while in a shell:
    httpd -l

    Lets find out what modules you have loaded at this point.

    I am not an ubuntu person but I believe /etc/apache2/conf.d/php.conf is where it stores the configuration (I could be wrong)

    ls -al /etc/apache2/conf.d/php.conf would help, you can also apt-get php again to ensure it's installed.

    FYI, on Ubuntu, the command is apache2 not httpd.

    so type this instead:
    Code:
    apache2 -l

    Ok here are the installed modules:
    root@mike-laptop:~# apache2 -l
    Compiled in modules:
    core.c
    mod_log_config.c
    mod_logio.c
    prefork.c
    http_core.c
    mod_so.c

    However if i apt-get installl php5 it tells me the most recent version is currently installed(or something to that effect). So php5 is installed, apache apparently has no clue though.
    Where do I go from here?

    Do you have libapache2-mod-php5 installed?

    Run this:

    apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mysql php

    It will install the modules that aren't already installed.

    it would appear via that output that all appropriate modules are installed?
