cant see my php page

Hi....

I set up a virtual directory and placed my php files in them.  I cant see my page from the browser.  I put an html page in there and I saw it just fine.  The Php page is just an example from the web cuz its my first time.  Am I doing anything wrong?  Im running a linux box with apache as my web server.

thanks,

knoxxx

What happens when you try? Do you get an error message? What happens if you disable "friendly error message" (if you use IE) or switch to another browser? (IE does a good job of making it hard to find out what is actually wrong)

When you say you can't see the pages, is this via a directory listing or as a http://virtual/something.php?

Is PHP configured correctly? Do you have other PHP files working in other virtual directories?

What about the variable DocumentRoot in httpd.conf ?
Do you place your files in a directory or a sub-directory of the one defined in DocumentRoot ?

You should check your virtual host config for that virtual host and check to see if php is supported as a script.
(httpd.conf)


also...some web hosting co's make you use .pcgi or .php4 as extensions.

Make sure your apache server knows what to do with .php files:


In httpd.conf:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php


Also usefull:

DirectoryIndex index.html index.php
