prompt to save/open php file instead of displaying WP site locally (6 posts)

    whenever I try to go to localhost/wordpress in Firefox I get a prompt to save/open a php file (it does not give me the name of the file) instead of displaying the WP site properly. is there a firefox, MAMP, or wp setting I am missing somewhere? has anyone else run into this problem?

    a screengrab of the prompt is here

    any help would be appreciated.

    esmi - that's not very helpful
    "It's a MAMP setting issue."
    what settings?

    the link doesn't mention anything

    I solved it by commenting out
    AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php

    from .htaccess
