    i am a newbie, searching high and low for an answer.

    in the past two weeks, i have had 4 web servers installed and 3 different versions of php. i finally decided that what i wanted to use was apache/php4/mysql.

    i uninstalled all the stuff and reinstalled fresh versions.

    now i think everything is correct, except trying to access a .php file in my browser invokes a download.

    i have scoured the forums, and everyone talks about the following (these are from my httpd.conf file):

    ServerName www.myname.com
    DocumentRoot "f:/wwwroot"
    <Directory "f:/wwwroot">
    ScriptAlias /php/ "c:/php/"
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
    Action aplication/x-httpd-php "/php/php.exe"


    any ideas? please help, as i probably won't get much sleep until it works....

    Change it to this:

    ServerName www.myname.com
    DocumentRoot "f:/wwwroot"
    ScriptAlias /php/ "c:/php"
    Action aplication/x-httpd-php "/php/php.exe"
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

    assuming php.exe is in Chp, and your html/php files are in f:wwwroot, this will (or at least should) work properly.

    wow.

    thanks for the quick reply (it is 12:30am here, don't know about there!)

    in looking at your reply, i saw the problem.... it was a typo (aplication instead of application)


    YEA!!!!!

    (and thanks for your input!)
