I've tried to install MAMP (also the "manual version of these things) but I haven't got any PHP enabled response from my web server yet....
Running MAMP and loading localhost/index.html returns "It works!"
Well that's nice - if it were true... I've tried to load my own index.html file into MAMP/htdocs (default folder) and to load the same into the sites folder. Both locations will return the test part of the file, but not the response from e.g. this file:
<html> <body> <?php echo "Hello World"; ?> test </body> </html>
The only result here is "test" - what am I missing here?
