Im utilizing a linux machine, and that i adopted the instructions seen on http://jm2.php.net/manual/en/install.php to create php, apache and my sql.

Used to do what it really stated and absolutely nothing more, however when I attempt to spread out b .perl file with opera or chrome, it downloads...?

Im carrying out a tutorial on learning php seen here: http://devzone.zend.com/node/view/id/625

Can there be something i am not doing or doing wrong?

All solutions are appreciated.

Based on this howto:

http://jm2.php.net/manual/en/install.unix.apache.php

Please make certain you probably did steps 14 and 15, what's happening - most likely your webserver does not recognize php scripts AS php scripts, and transmits individuals for your browser - leading to either download or exhibiting the origin.

Thanks

You will have to use http://localhost/path/to/page/page.php
