    Well... I think MAMP's Apache is stupid. Can anyone help me?

    Two weeks ago, I installed MAMP. Everything worked fine, until day 2, when it stopped interpreting PHP code. Specifically, <?php got seen as an HTML beginning tag. Uninstalled it.

    Two days ago, I've reinstalled it. Everything worked fine until NOW, when the problem reappears. The MAMP start page loads, unfortunately I can't say the same for my PHP scripts.

    Is it possible that it gets into conflict with the OS X installation of Apache and PHP? If yes, how do I get rid of the OS X's one?

    Thanks in advance!

    The pre-existing installs of Apache and PHP won't be an issue unless you've tinkered with any path variables that may point to them.

    What type of customizations have you done with MAMP, such as changes in the httpd.conf file? I've never had this issue in the 3 or 4 some odd years I've been using it.

    I'm an epic fail. I really am. I was accessing it through FILE, instead of HTTP.
