php installed

I’ve installed php, mainly so I could stick a copy of phpost – web based pop mail client on it to try out (Very nice it is too). The install went fine – this was an install via Yast after all – and then I just had to stop and start apache*. PHP was then working serving within apache, so php scripts can be executed from within the same directory and via the same port as static pages.

*I’ve now discovered that you can use the “apachectl” application to do this:- log into a shell under root and type either ‘apachectl start’ or ‘apchectl stop’ (without the quotes).
