Subject Re: [users@httpd] php files downloading on 2.0.54
Date Sun, 22 May 2005 05:22:35 GMT

What seems to be the case is that Apache is no longer recognizing .php 
files as something that needs to be executed and handled by a module.  
You're off to a good start with LoadModule, but you also have to have 
the following line in your httpd.conf file somewhere:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

You can find more details on this page:

Hope that helps!
