PHP files being sent to use instead of being processed (3 posts)

    I use lighttpd and I've been trying to get wordpress to work when installed in /blog instead of being the main page of my site.
    When installed in / wordpress works fine, and I have no troubles.
    When installed in /blog instead of wordpress php files being parsed they are being sent to the user (as application/octet-stream mime type).
    I also have Gallery2 installed in /gallery2 and it works without a problem.
    I'm using mod_fastcgi and PHP 4.3.10-16 (cgi-fcgi)

    have you tried asking in the lighttpd forums? they might answer this faster (though, I'd like to know what's the issue...).

    Sounds like a configuration problem, but I don't know how lighttpd is configured for execution of php scripts.

    (do you see a big performance gain using lighttpd instead of apache?)

    Hm... I submitted an issue this morning :
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/61569

    slightly different issue but similar in that, inside wordpress dir it works fine but outside it falls apart.. maybe caused by the same thing ?

    But then all of this is a few feet above my head so maybe I'm way off. :)
