PHP LAMP Stack Apache

Hi,
I'm running a ubuntu lamp stack, I have a js script which requires via ajax a php file, when I run the script It throws a 404 error can't find the php file. However when I click the path it says it has 404'd on it downloads the php file it should be running? Therefore the path is correct?

This is the contents of an inspection:

If, when you click the link to the PHP script, it's downloading the PHP file, then you're not properly setup to serve/execute PHP files or; the directory from which the PHP file is being served, for one reason or another, is not allowing PHP files to be executed from that directory.

To dive in further, we'd need to take a look at your Apache VirtualHost configuration for the domain. If you'll paste your VirtualHost in a PasteBin and post that link in a response, I'd be more than happy to take a look at it for you :-).
