I have installed lamp on my new bought bandwagon host vps ip ,and edit an file named echo.php in /var/www/ .

The content in echo.php is:


In the console , php /var/www/echo.php can list php info for me.
why http://vps_ip/echo.php (input in firefox) list nothing for me?

ssh  root@vps_ip:28662

Error info: ssh: could not resolve hostname

It is so strange that the vps_ip can be connected by putty!

  • Did you make sure that /var/www is the document root of your webserver? It used to be /var/www/html in apache. Also, is it giving you blank page or 404? – Sree Jun 18 '15 at 7:29

Check the apache error_log for issues. Generally either /var/log/apache/error_log or /var/log/httpd/error_log

Can you confirm that the path /var/www is the actual document root. I would suggest creating another file in plain text at that location and verify that it works. eg: echo "Test Me" >/var/www/test.txt

The plain text file will at least confirm that the folder/files are in the correct places and that you may have another problem with php.
