When logging onto http://localhost, I get the default html page ok.  When I try to run the phpinfo() script on http://localhost/phpinfo.php, I get a download popup window............  If I accept the download, I get a popup window displaying <? phpinfo(); ?> [appears it is not running the script]

Why would a download opertion start instead of processing the script and displaying the results?  Is this a bug or is it me?
I have doubled checked both the Apache and PHP setups.  As far as I can tell, they are installed per the instructions.

Your Apache configuration is wrong. There is a problem with PHP. If you use Apache 2.0.x, download PHP from
and configure all parameters then try again. 

in Httpd.conf add this lines;
LoadModule php4_module c:/php/sapi/php4apache2.dll
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .php4 .phtml

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
