Hi, I have a problem in that Netscape browsers are unable to view a php script. This works with MSIE, but Netscape just prints the source of a php to the screen like a text file instead of processing the php. My installation is:

tru64 5.1A
apache 2.0.35
php 4.2.0
gcc 3.0.3

I compiled apache and php without any event and they installed fine and the server is up and running. The code of the php is simple:

cat: cannot open forms.cgi
# cat forms.php

<form action="action.php3" method="POST">
Your name: <input type=text name=name>
You age: <input type=text name=age>
<input type=submit>

This shows perfectly with MSIE but just the above text with Netscape 6 or netscape 4 browsers.

I did try this with the alpha version of apache 2.0.36 but it had the same results. Any idea why there is a problem with netscape??

Note that the same script above works fine when viewed from a netscape browser on an older server running

apache 1.3.?
tru64 4.0g
php 4.1.?

In the httpd.conf I had 
     <IfModule mod_php4.c>
wrapped around my AddType. So, it wasn't getting read. 
Its ok now. Please close this report.
