    I'm new to being a root admin in WHM -- just moved from reselling shared hosting to a VPS with cPanel and WHM. I needed to add a couple php extensions, so I went through the easyapache compile process and it seemed pretty straight forward and went smoothly. However, now all my WordPress sites are broken -- instead of the pages, we get box prompting to open or save something called application/x-httpd-php (395 bytes). HTML pages open normally. Does anyone have any ideas what could cause this?

    Hi WriteCraft,

    Try logging into cPanel/WHM and verify that your PHP Handler is set up correctly. You can do this by going to: Configure PHP and suEXEC

    Thank you Kurt!

    That was exactly the solution my server tech came up with. After I use easyapache to re-compile PHP, I must then go to Service Configuration > Configure PHP and suEXEC, and set the PHP handler to suphp and Apache suEXEC to on. That is the correct handler for my server I guess. I suppose restarting the apache service after that wouldn't hurt either.

    So this is solved for me! Other newbie's results may vary.
