[SOLVED] php files downloading rather than displaying

Hi all

I have recently installed VirtualBox and phpVirtualBox on my system and now no sites will display. Instead it tries to download the pages. Could someone please tell me which file I need to look at to get them to display again correctly. I have checked a lot of other sites and followed their guides but most are aimed at php5 and not php7.

Any help greatly appreciated.

OK, I've resolved the issue. The issue was caused by the installation of VirtualBox and / or phpVirtualBox changing a setting in the mods-enabled/php7.0.conf file.

Before:

<FilesMatch ".+\.ph(p[3457]?|t|tml)$">
    SetHandler application/x-httpd-php
</FilesMatch>


After (the fix):

<FilesMatch ".+\.ph(p[3457]?|t|tml)$">
    #SetHandler application/x-httpd-php
</FilesMatch>

Any file extension that downloads instead of executing needs a mime type - in days of old you had to set up many mime types just so you could play a mp3 or avi

OK. Where's the "unsubscribe" button? I'm trying to not receive any further comments as the topic is marked as SOLVED.
