Same problem, can't figure out what's going on.

What error messages do you guys get in your php log?

I just fixed mine by using <?php instead of <?

Does this work for you guys?

make sure apache is started and running.

put all your website files (html, php, images, css, etc) in your document root where apache expects to find them:

to get apache to correctly parse you website files, you need to make sure you access it using http, do not open the file directly.

make sure you use full php stype tags, not short ASP style tags. although you can change that in your php.ini file, I highly recommend you dont. it is the standard php coding practice to use full php tags. also, if you will be using any XML with your website, having short style tags enabled will cause problems.
