I've just installed a suse leap 42.1 lamp server. Seems to run fine but for this issue. Php files run fine in the primary htdocs directory, and if localhost/dir/file.php is used, but if addressed by www.domain.com/file.php they download rather than run. I have spent a day trying to figure out why. This is a new, default install, and I cannot find anywhere that the php facility is blocked for virtual hosts. I've checked php.ini http.conf, and the virtual host configuration file. It must be somewhere! I'm a Linux newbie so if someone could give me a pointer of exactly what to look for, or where, I'd really appreciate it.

it seems that PHP is only enabled for localhost and not in the global context.

Add this to your vhost


<FilesMatch \.php$>
    SetHandler application/x-httpd-php
