I tried running Laravel php framework from my own custom folder (not in '/var/www'). I've set up vhost, and permissions and it seems to work correctly, but Instead of seeing the laravel welcome page, it offers my to download a phtml file. This post seems tobe relevant: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1519645#post_9539904
But I don't have the /etc/apache2/mods-available/php5.conf file. Am I on the right track here? How can I fix this.
