OS X lion 10.7.3, with 1.7.3. Also OS X Leopard 10.5.8 with 1.7.3.
I am having problems getting either of the above systems to process PHP, despite the fact that both say that the installation was successful and that the status in the start-up page says that everything is activated. I have placed a file index.HTML in the local host directory which reads fine either by copying the full address into the search bar of Safari or dragging and dropping the file into Safari. This file contains a link to a page test.php with a simple script – the usual Echo hello thing. The link works but the PHP does not run and the script is shown up as text. The fault condition is the same on both systems. Clearly there is something that I am not understanding, or maybe even lots of things. Could anyone give me any hints as to what to do or where to look?
