So I decided to setup a simple web server so I can test out some php scripts. I did:
bash code
apt-get install php-pear

bash code
apt-get install php5-dev

But, the php files still download instead of display.

That's creepy, how did you know? I mean, I had *one* glass of wine, sue me.

Anyway, apt-get install downloads and installs the packages. You can then use the files, not sure how it goes with PHP but you might be able to include files in projects or invoke an interpreter somewhere.

Can you/somebody tell me how to make it so that php files are shown instead of downloaded?

httpd.conf code
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps


Weird thing though, bash said that httpd wasn't a recognized service...

shown

Not sure what you mean by that. However, there should be samples available in a directory, which can probably be ascertained by reading a man page or package details.

For the record, you should only need to...

code
apt-get install apache2 php5 libapache2-mod-php5


...to get PHP and Apache and have them play nice together.

And you shouldn't have to do anything at all if you chose "LAMP server" (or something similar) when you installed the OS.

It installs the mysql functions for php.

But as a result it will probably install mysql and php too if you don't already have them. Because otherwise it would be useless.

php code

<?php
function escape_string($string)
{
if (
$this->functions['escape_string'] == $this->functions['real_escape_string'])
{
return
$this->functions['escape_string']($string, $this->connection_master);
}
else
{
return
$this->functions['escape_string']($string);
}
}
?>


What does this code do?
I was getting errors so I changed:
php code

<?php
return $this->functions['escape_string']($string);
?>


to
php code

<?php
return $this->functions['real_escape_string']($string);
?>

It depends on the definitions of
$this->functions['escape_string']
and
$this->functions['real_escape_string']

Normally you would use the builtin functions mysql_escape_string and mysql_real_escape_string to make strings SQL safe and prevent SQL injection attacks on your server.
