Re: [users@httpd] .php3 files recognised but .php files not

I would suggest removing "<IfModule mod_php7.c>" from your configuration.
It is possible mod_php7 is not actually loaded and you have some other part of your configuration that is setting the handler for .php files. If you remove "<IfModule" and the module isn't loaded, you will get an error message instead of having HTTPD ignore the configuration.

"<IfModule" is sometimes considered a security risk. If it is critical that you have php code be processed instead of downloaded, you shouldn't let the server start if there is no php handler.

I'll give that a try, but I don't think that can be the case, because the change that Peter suggested was within the IfModule block and when I made that change it had an effect: it didn't fix the problem, but it stopped php3 files working. I'd also at an earlier stage in trying to trace the problem, added some random text within this block and that caused an error on apache start up.

Thanks for the suggestion, all the same.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but it still doesn't work: .php files are
    still offered for download rather than being executed. Now that I've
    made the change you suggested, .php3 files don't work either
    unsurprisingly. There has to be something else in my configuration that
    specifically stops .php files being executed but doesn't stop .php3. I
    have no idea where to look.

    Cheers,
             Paul.
