I had installed version 5.3.2 but had to downgrade to 5.2.6 for development purposes.
I uninstalled php 5.3.2,
then rebooted the computer,
then tried installing 5.2.6, an error came up, it said install xml2,
I did, still didn't work, I installed xml2 devel and php installed.
Then I ran a make test that php installation recommended, I forgot to copy the results.
I tried loading a php page and it gave me the option to download the php file instead, because it didn't recognize what a php file was.
I looked at apache modules, it does not contain a php module.
I've tried reinstalling php, that didn't change anything. Any ideas? suggestions? How to get the module to load in apache?
