I just installed Apache 2.2.9 and PHP 5.2.6 on Vista. It all seems to have taken well.  I can run PHP files but it requires that I encase all PHP commands in <?php ?>.  All my code is written in <? ?> though.  How do I set it up to read the code under <? ?>:

in php.ini, you need to have this setting:
short_open_tag = On
