Please forgive me if this topic has been presented a million other times.

I have installed wamp and its constituent components and its essentially working. I've tested web pages, they're working, presenting client side scripts okay, and even run PHP as "web pages" so to speak (that is, the PHP runs and presents the output I'm expecting).

Now I want to configure apache to run PHP server side via embedded tags <?php ... ?>. However, it's not working.

I've walked through a couple of tutorials on how to set up the apache configuration in order to run PHP as such, but it's still not working. I verify by viewing the source of the html pages and still all I see are the original embedded tags and no apparent server side replacement.

I'm not a novice computing professional, but I am a newbie to apache, php, and mysql configuration. Based on some of the other reports I'm reading, I'm sure it's probably a configuration issue, but I need a little guidance in getting it going.

Please help!

Thanks,
-Michael
