Beginner tutorial problems[Resolved]

I’m having troubles with setting up apache2 to work with slim. I’m actually not sure what the problem is as I’m quite green in regards to pretty much anything web related. I have been following the tutorial found here but I am stuck on setting up the configuration of apache2. I know this is only related to apache2 as ‘php -S localhost:8080’ works as per the tutorial. Running the apache2 server returns the contents of the index.php file, fx calling or returns the contents of index.php.

Here’s my .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule . index.php [L]

Here’s my apache2 virtualhost setup:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
    DocumentRoot "path/src/public"

    #ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
    #CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

    <Directory "path/src/public">
	    AllowOverride All
	    Require all granted

How was Apache installed? It sounds as if PHP might not even be enabled within Apache if you are getting the file contents back.

Yes, that’s it! I missed that libapache2-mod-php5 wasnt installed correctly when I did it. Thanks for pointing it out to me, it works perfectly now.
