Hello, Thankyou for taking the time to look at this.

I am experincing this problem, i have installed the latest apache 2.2 and downloaded the latest php 5.2.1 and extracted it to c:\php i changed php.ini-recommended to php.ini

In the apache httpd.conf i have set the nesscary settings and specified PHPIniDir = "C:/php"

Apache Service monitor says apache/2.2.4 (Win32) PHP/5.2.1

I am loading a php file that has <?phpinfo();?> in the root of httpddocs.

When browse to the website and view the phpinfo.php which contains the above, I get a blank page. I view teh source code for the page and i see <?phpinfo();?>, after trying numerious things, i decided to try php.ini-dist and change it to php.ini.

It works i get the successfully create phpinfo page with all the php information.

So what in the php.ini-recommended is causing php not to phrase PHP files. 

- This happens with the latest CVS snapshot.
- I'm using unaltered php.ini-recommended except for changing it to .ini

THankyou in advance for your help.

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

php.ini-recommended disables short_open_tags and turns display_errors of so you need <?php phpinfo(); ?>.
