    Hi all,

    I've installed ispconfig3 on a CentOS 6 server (I've installed ispconfig 2 in the past along with different versions of linux, with much success, and I decided to take the plunge and try version 3 out). Everything works, except for php on a site which I added.

    I've tried the different settings for php: Disabled, mod-php, fcgi, cgi, etc, it doesn't work at all, and just shows the php code, so I'm stuck.

    Could you help me out please? It would be much appreciated.

    Which tutorial (URL) did you use?
    Any errors in your Apache error log?

    Did you check the vhosts created by ISPConfig if they have PHP in it?

    Hi Falko,

    Thanks anyways, I solved it. Found out php 5.3 disables short tags by default (unlike 5.2).

    ;) - It's funny though, so many php programs use short tags that disabling short tags cause all sorts of problems. :p

    Well it's their own fault. People should keep to the rules and write pretty code imho.
