Running PHP embedded into Apache as a module (default Fedora setup with
correct handler set for .php files), a file with suffix .php and content

<?php .... ?>

is treated to be a PHP file and handled so.

If you want to use PHP as a script language for CGI the file has to have
a shebang line


like with all other script languages. You too need a Apache config line

AddHandler    cgi-script    .php

to let Apache know that files with suffix .php shall be treated as CGI
files. Other CGI setups are possible, like the default Fedora setup
where files with suffix .cgi inside the CGI alias directory are treated
as CGI scripts automatically.

For general CGI scripting hints please read
