Since installing WordPress 2.8.1, I and several users have been having problems with links trying to download a page as ‘application/x-httpd-php’ instead of serving HTML. Is there something wrong with the configuration for application/x-httpd-php in WordPress or is there something I need to add to my .htaccess file to make the links work correctly?
It doesn’t happen consistently but happens often. For example, clicking on a link doesn’t take you to that page. Instead, it may bring up a dialog box that says I am trying to download a page of application/x-httpd-php called index.php–do you want to save it?
I’ve experienced this myself and so far have heard from 3 people that they are having the same problem in IE7 and Firefox 3.0 on Windows XP, and Firefox 3.5 and Safari 4.? on Mac OSX
