Support » Fixing WordPress » one reader doesn’t see transformed PHP

  • There is one reader of my blog who says he doesn’t get the pages that everyone else I know sees, but rather the original index.php file (the one that starts off
    ‘ <?php
    /* Don’t remove these lines. */
    $blog = 1;
    // Uncomment the next line if you want to track blog updates from’
    My blog is at; when I asked him to try it worked fine. I’ve checked the DirectoryIndex and it has index.php in there (and nobody else has complained that this is happening, so usually it works). I pointed him at a few other WordPress blogs and he says they are all fine, just mine doesn’t work.
    Has anyone else seen this? Any ideas on what might be going on? I’m running WordPress 1.0.2 on Debian 3.0 stable with Apache 1.3.26.

  • What browser does he use? I can see it works perfectly fine, the way it is supposed to, on my browser (FireFox). The source of index.php should not be visible to your friend at all.




    Noit sure what is going on there…. worked fine for me too (FireFox) (BTW: your link has a ; on the end of it causeing a 404 error initialy).
    I tried it three ways, and each on worked.

    I’ve had people test on FireFox, Opera, Mozilla, Safari, IE (no particular order) on Mac, Windows, Linux. He’s the only one who’s complained of this, so I don’t think it’s a browser thing.

    ah, the wonders of automatic formatting 😉 must remember to put spaces after URIs in the future…

    Found the answer – although I have no idea why the problem only affected one person, or conversely, why it affected him at all. But, just in case someone else has the same weird problem…
    In the httpd.conf file there was a line that was commented out that loaded the PHP module (LoadModule….) . I uncommented the line, restarted apache, and voila, it works.
    Thanks to everyone who confirmed it wasn’t a widespread problem. I was imagining lots of people put off but not reporting it.
