I just installed PHP and Apache2 on my laptop (ubuntu 12.04), but I can't get my PHP files to load. I have followed this tutorial: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/ubuntu/installing-php5-and-apache-on-ubuntu/ , and the index.html file works, but when I try any php, I get a server error.
I looked online for a few hours, and I added "AddType application/x-httpd-php .php" to my httpd.conf (but I don't think I'm supposed to be editing that file for the ubuntu version??) in /etc/apache2/, which somehow let ONE php file load (which just contains phpinfo()). I then tried making a new php file with the same code, but that one won't load (server error). I have no idea why it only loads that specific file. I have tried restarting apache and opening the other one first, but for some reason, it only loads the first file. I also tried to move the file to another directory in /var/www/, but not dice. I hope this makes sense, because I'm a beginner here. any help would be appreciated!!
