View Full Version : [ubuntu] LAMP installation trouble

November 15th, 2009, 03:08 AM
I am trying to install LAMP in ubuntu
For that
I completed the following steps successfully in the order shown below

sudo apt-get install apache2
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 start
sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

After the above steps I created a PHP page named test.php in /var/www
The contents of test.php is
echo “Hello World”;

I am 100% sure that there is no syntactical errors in the php code.
But when I access the page using “http://localhost/test.php”, the following error showed

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ',' or ';' in /var/www/test.php on line 2

I don't know what to do at this situation. Please suggest me a solution.
