Test.php being downloaded instead of displayed

I set up a simple test.php on my server with

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

but it seems like when i browse to the file its being downloaded instead
of displayed in the browser window. does anyone know how i can fix
this?

What is your nginx configuration?

what do u mean? sry im still new

No problem… we were all new one time, I’m still learning.

How are you planning on serving php?

Nginx by itself does not process scripts, simply passes the requests to
a
backend.

Google: php-fpm (see php-fpm.org) or apache mod_php for example.

Your nginx configuration file is called “nginx.conf” in it you specify
how
you want php to be served.

Configure nginx to pass all requests for PHP files to the FastCGI
process. Check the wiki for configuration examples.
