PHP doesn't render pages in Ubuntu 11.10

Installed apache/PHP using

sudo apt-get install php5 mysql-server apache2

my file (info.php):

    echo "test";

opens in browser, but shows a blank white page.

Is there anything relevant in the logs? /var/log/apache2/ is where they're located. PHP should be printing any errors into the error log. – Darth Android Aug 10 '12 at 16:50

You'll have to enable PHP5 module in Apache. Guide here

sudo a2enmod php5
sudo service apache2 restart
