Dear All,

I am trying to set up Apache 2 and php 5 on my shiny new Ubuntu.

When I say http://localhost

I get a message which says "It works"

Now I made a file called test.php in /var/www with the content

# test.php
<?php phpinfo(); ?>

but when i say http://localhost/test.php i get a pop up which says you have
chosen to open test.php.

I am used WAMP in the past but I am new to LAMP. Any comments would help.

Many thanks,
