PHP4 Question

Have a quick question about the PHP4 alternative.

When I click the link in the KB to get the PHP5-CGI Binary, am I supposed to download a file? All I see is one huge page of garbled text.

Any help is very much appreciated!

Looks like your browser doesn’t understand that it downloads a binary file.
You can right click on the link and choose “Download” option (which might be worded differently in different browsers).
After you download this file you will need to follow instructions on the knowledge base page on how to upload it to your cgi-bin folder

The file should be saved as php5-cgi
There is no file extension. If you web-browser adds an extension, you should rename the file to “php5-cgi” after downloading it.

An additional note:

If for some reason your browser refuses to save the file without an extension save it as a text file
then once you upload it via ftp rename it with your ftp program from “php5-cgi.txt” to “pgp5-cgi”.

Worked for me!
