PHP Displaying Blank Page on Apache

Almost always the reason will be that the php.so file is missing but also that php.conf is misconfigured.

In the problem machine it is actually PHP 7 installed so if you reference PHP 5 of course things wil be broken!

Take for example here:

cat /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf
#
# PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language which attempts to make it
# easy for developers to write dynamically generated webpages.
#

LoadModule php7_module modules/libphp7.so

#
# Cause the PHP interpreter to handle files with a .php extension.
#
AddHandler php7-script .php
AddType text/html .php

#
# Add index.php to the list of files that will be served as directory
# indexes.
#
DirectoryIndex index.php

#
# Uncomment the following line to allow PHP to pretty-print .phps
# files as PHP source code:
#
#AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

 

moodle displays code instead of outputting HTML

cat /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf|grep -i addhandler
AddHandler php5-script .php
 

Fix it and then restart Apache


sed -i s/"php5-script"/"php7-script"/g /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf
service httpd restart
