I just installed php & apache on Windows but the simple code below saved as .php outputs text code instead of generating the proper html page. I've checked to make sure its outputting text/html and not just text but the error is still the same.
print("Hello world!");

$> php hello.php
Content-type: text/html

Hello world!

but all other regular .html pages and a .php page with <? phpinfo(); ?> in it displays OK.
What could I be doing wrong? Do I need to change any settings in th php.ini file?

If I understand you correctly, by proper html page, you mean the <html><head></head><body></body></html> parts, right? If so, you have to add them by yourself, like this:



echo "Hello world!";

That's true. PHP will add the MIME-type header for you magically, but that's all.
