ever since i upgraded from php5.4 to 5.6 and tried to clean up some previous junk, new virtual-servers seem to function strangely.
here are my steps to reproduce the issue:
create new virtual-server using only the DNS domain enabled? and Apache website enabled? checked
enter /home/marksdomaintest.com/public_html, and create a simple php phpinfo(); script.
test to make sure it is working properly.
attempt to change the default(?) Apache mod_php to either:
CGI wrapper (run as virtual server owner)
FCGId (run as virtual server owner)
- now the tiny script just merely downloads and does not execute.
it will go back to executing normally if I [re]select Apache mod_php again.
EDIT: maybe same issue as https://www.virtualmin.com/node/64638
