I have apache webserver on linux. And php installed.
Php scripts work. Now i want to make the php script as default script. Lemme tell you how it is not default scripting. If i write <?php echo "php works"; ?>
it displays. if i write <? echo "php is default"; ?>  it gives error. So how do i make it default so that second script will also get processed by php.

Thanks in advance

It sounds like short tags have been disabled (this is generally a good thing, especially if you are working with XML [including XHTML]).

However:

Edit your php.ini file, and change "short_open_tag" to "On"

Like this:

; Allow the <? tag.  Otherwise, only <?php and <script> tags are recognized.  
; NOTE: Using short tags should be avoided when developing applications or
; libraries that are meant for redistribution, or deployment on PHP
; servers which are not under your control, because short tags may not
; be supported on the target server. For portable, redistributable code,
; be sure not to use short tags.
short_open_tag = On
