Thanks TexStar, tried task-lamp. Nice package.
...but still no cigar... (noted it for next time though
Basically the problem persists (i'm probably a halfwitt).
. yes all documents are in the document root ie.: /var/www/html
. Yes they have 'php' extensions
. Apache loads the page, but shows the simple php-script 'as-is'. ie.: <?php echo "hello world"; ?>
. Same script (and others) run with whistles and bells in the CLI environment, no worries.
. As above, runs smooth online (apache server too)
I'll gather some more info, conf-file, error-logs etc. and post it here a little bit later...
Gotta go and be social tonight
Thanks for your help so far.
