Subject [users@httpd] ugh...Apache 2.0.44 + PHP 4.2.2 on RHL8 please help
Date Mon, 31 Mar 2003 17:36:16 GMT
I'm installing TUTOS ( on my RHL8 staging server.

Everything in the install guide is completed except the loading of the TUTOS database into
my PostgreSQL install. This appears to be accomplished by navigating to a PHP page and following
instructions. However, each time I visit the page I'm presented with a download dialog for
the page!

	"You have chosen to download a file of type: application/x-httpd-php..."

Okay, before you say "AddType..."

Note that TUTOS provides an include conf that provides this information. Here are some further

I have the following environment:

A *custom* install of Apache 2.0.44 running (/usr/local/apache)
   This install appears not to have a PHP module. Do I need one?

The *default* PHP install with RHL8...
    % php -v
    % which php
    % ls -ld /etc/php.ini
      -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 29233 Feb 13 09:12 /etc/php.ini

Without going into the details of TUTOS, installation is straightforward and an "apache.conf"
file is included that sets up the basics for Apache via an Include directive...

    Include /usr/local/apache/htdocs/tutos/apache.conf

The file provides a number of directives via a Directory block, including:

	AddType application/x-httpd-php .php 
	AddType application/x-httpd-pinc .pinc
	Allow from all

Any help trying to debug the PHP handling is greatly appreciated.
