Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Setting up a LAMP server, installing the latest apache2.2.21 and php-5.3.9 using source. Downloaded all needed dependancies, ./configure make install no errors, all the module files are where it should be. Yet firefox displays a blank page on the website when loading the default php info code for index.php and other php pages.

It looks like I can't get php to communicate with apache.

Can you provide your configuration for your <VirtualHost>? Anything in Apache's error log? –  Shane Madden Jan 18 '12 at 1:12
Any errors in your php log files? Also, check the httpd access log to make sure requests are being processed. –  David W Jan 18 '12 at 1:18
