LAMP & Ubuntu

This should be easier, but I think made harder because I corrupted my Firefox applications helper list, and then chose the wrong way out

My problem, the browser tries to download index.phtml, in retrospect because, I believe that the module wasn’t properly installed into apache. Using Ubuntu 9.04

The Right Way

This page, Apache MySQL PHP at https://help.ubuntu.com/ is the bible.

apt-get install  apache2 php5 php5-mysql libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mysql mysql-server

I am running in a virtual box so I needed to create a /etc/apache2/conf.d/fqdn. There wasn’t one on my system, it needs the line

ServerName localhost

I suspect that fixed it, and that my errors were caused by not initially correctly installing libapache2-mod-php5. I have proved that my install works by using Opera. Now to remove the .phtml line from the firefox browser and make the vm a server.
