Hello experts

I have installed an apache web server on Linux (SuSE 10 SP3), which runs smoothly.

I recently installed (via configure-make-make install) php-5.3.6, no errors were detected.

created a small php file, info.php, which has the following:


When accessing via the web server, the output doesn't interpret the php file, just displaying the following:


What seems pretty strange is that if I invoke the command
php info.php
from the command line, it executes and interprets the php file correctly.

When restarting apache, it says that PHP is configured

[Tue May 17 19:38:33 2011] [notice] caught SIGTERM, shutting down
[Tue May 17 19:38:35 2011] [notice] Apache/2.2.17 (Unix) PHP/5.3.6 configured -- resuming normal operations

but it seems that it's not executing it correctly :(!!

Do I have to make any additional configuration on the http server? Can't seem to find what's wrong with it
