    Hello Group

    Ubuntu 6.06
    Server version: Apache/1.3.34 (Ubuntu)
    Server built: Jul 26 2006 09:10:06
    PHP 5.1.2 (cli) (built: Jul 17 2007 17:32:48)

    I have have been following the tutrial http://flurdy.com/docs/postfix and am not completed with the setup process however I am at the phase of getting ready to test if the email server is functioning to this point.

    Anyhow, I am told I should be able to create mysql tables by 'command line' OR by using 'phpmyadmin'.
    When I am at the server index which displays links to 'apache2-default' which takes me to the apache test page and also the 'phpmyadmin' link which when clicked on only offers to doanload the file or view it by selecting a local app. :confused:
    I have created a 'test.php' file in '/var/www/test.php' but when I click on it I get the same result- Save OR View??

    What am I doing wrong, why won't 'phpmyadmin' work as it should?

    I ran 'sudo dpkg -l' and the list shows that both 'apache' and 'apache2' are installed in addition to that the list also shows 'php4' & 'php5' as being installed too! :eek:
    According to the flurdy tutorial I am following the only pacakges to be used are 'apache2' and 'php4'...
    It seems by this tutorial that 'SquirrelMail' is only compatible with 'php4' and not 'php5' - I guess??

    If I restart apache all is fine.
    But if I attempt to do the same with apache2
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
     * Forcing reload of apache 2.0 web server...                                                                                apache2: Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1 for ServerName
    (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
    no listening sockets available, shutting down
    Unable to open logs
    
    Another note would be that when I access the server by IP using a browser the index does display links as I defined above, but it bothers me with it's referral to apache2- when I run 'apache -v' it returns 1.3.34 not 2.

    Should I 'apt-get remove apache' && 'apt-get remove php4' or what- I'm not sure?

    Oh Yeah, I fogot this-- I edited '/etc/mysql/config.inc.php' ALSO
    host = localhost
    auth_type = config
    user = root
    password = xxxxx

    Can someone provide a n00b! some guidance please?

    Thank you

    Regards

    PHP is not enabled in Apache.
    What are the outputs of
    Code:
    ls -la /etc/apache2/mods-available
    and
    Code:
    ls -la /etc/apache2/mods-enabled
    ?

    Since this original post was made I removed:
    apache
    apache2
    php4
    php5
    libapache2-mod-php4
    libapache2-mod-php5
    libapache-mod-php5
    squirrelmail

    And then I re-installed:
    apache2
    php5
    libapache2-mod-php5
    untar xva <roundmail_file_name>


    Thank you for the help

    Regards

    You must enable PHP5 like this:
    Code:
    a2enmod php5
    and restart Apache.
