PHP 5 + Apache 2 Access Forbidden Error

P: 1
Hi there,

I know this question has been probably asked before, but all the answers I found couldn't help me. I am a noob when it comes to Linux, so please bear with me. I am running Suse Enterprise Server 10 and I installed Apache 2 and PHP 5 according to the installation guidelines, and I created the common test.php file. The Problem is I keep getting this error (from apache errorlog):

(13) Permission denied: file permissions deny server access.

I checked the permissions, and eventually I set them to 755, and now Firefox tries to download the php file instead of executing it.

Before any of you suggest it, I have added the php application type, as well as the php module to the apache config files.

Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Did you restart Apache after making those changes?
Does the phpinfo script display correctly?
