<pre> apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5 </pre> then <pre> sudo service apache2 restart </pre> And everything is now up and running, thank for your help @alexandre, I also added port :443 – thanks

Thanks guy.

I can’t run - sudo service apache2 restart


I get the following error <pre> apache2: Syntax error on line 210 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: Syntax error on line 1 of /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php5.load: Cannot load /usr/lib/apache2/modules/ into server: /usr/lib/apache2/modules/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Action ‘configtest’ failed. The Apache error log may have more information. …fail! </pre> Grrrrrr…
