    Local Host only showing source code...
    I've got the files in the right location --Library/WebServer/Documents/...

    they're coded correctly (I do this for a living), they're just plain ole HTML files, nothing dynamic, no javascript, just html and css...

    I load them to the remote server and they work fine but when I go to view them locally I can only see the source code...

    What gives...?

    Files:
    Are PHP files, I'm viewing them in FF 3.0.11

    The file name is index.php

    Here's the path to the parent folder:

    http://localhost/knowink/mao/

    This should show me the index.php page, I get a directory listing instead.

    http://localhost/knowink/mao/index.php

    This is the path to the index page, it should definately show me the index page...I get the source code instead. This is a direct copy and paste from my browser window, not from the source code listing - if you had clicked Command-U in FF.

    I'm hoping not to come off arrogant here but I do this for a living, I build Mac apps and web based apps for a publishing company, in PHP using MySQL for a back end, heavy on AJAX and CSS, just started tinkering with HTML 5 (the geolocation stuff). I'm also pretty confident that this is probably user error (me ):

    You initially said plain ole HTML files and now PHP..which is anything but plain ole HTML..

    Either way, as @wheelguy said, PHP support is available in Apache, but isn't enabled..so follow this guide and enable it.

    You can also configure Apache to render *.PHP files as *.HTML, but I think enabling PHP would be the best solution.

    in httpd.conf
    AddType text/html .php

    Once you have PHP installed it should read like this.

    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

    Again, I would just enable PHP, but this is technical possible.
