LAMP: PHP not working (keeps downloading files.php)
Installed with a 1-click LAMP on my droplet (2 weeks ago).
I now need to create a dynamic page using php, but if a create a file “test.php” with the following code:
<?php echo "Hello!"; ?>
instead of showing me an empty page which says “Hello!” it keeps downloading me test.php on my computer (when I connect to http://myip/test.php")!
Please note: ‘test.php’ is in /var/www/html with index.html and many other .html files that work correctly.
If I type
php -v in the command-line it says that php 7.0.22-0ubuntu0.16.04.1 is installed.
With LAMP i got installed Ubuntu 16.04 and Apache 2.4.18 (Ubuntu).
When I type
a2enmod php7.0 it says “Module php7.0 alredy enabled”.
I’m quite a newbie, so please help me… I have been searching for a solution for 2 days
