Hi guys/gals,

We were playing with our deb linux server with some upgrades and looks like something was misadjusted


What he have now is PHP not rendering the top level domain showing source code instead.  

www.example.com  - >> shows the php source code as plain text


www.example.com/test  - >> php works fine


We just updated php 5.5 to php 5. 6
Everything was working fine before.

I know its something easy we missed,  any ideas?  thanks

Maybe there is another page being executed rather than index.php.

This in .htaccess?

DirectoryIndex index.php

looks like php is not enabled. Try this:

sudo a2enmod php5

and restart apache:

sudo service apache2 restart

example1.com will open default page. How about example1.com/index.php?

example1.com opens index.php  but doesn't run php,  just shows  raw code


example1.com/index.php  executes the php,  shows desired output

Is there another index.html file or something similar (e.g., index,htm) that is opening or is it really index.php that is showing the code?

I think the problem can be on .htaccess file on the root. Maybe if you attach this file we can help you.

i doubt that is the issue,  as we host about 80 domains on the server and issue is for each domain after the update

heres on htaccess

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    <IfModule mod_negotiation.c>
        Options -MultiViews
    </IfModule>

    RewriteEngine On

    # Redirect Trailing Slashes If Not A Folder...
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.*)/$ /$1 [L,R=301]

    # Handle Front Controller...
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule ^ index.php [L]
</IfModule>

Open in new window

index.php is default already,  just doesn't render the php,  shows code instead

Was seeing the cached version of page.

Simple refresh fixed issue locally,  Otherwise it was working the entire time


Thanks again
