Fucking suse and php5 problem

I'm trying to setup a new server with a new apache, php and mysql.

Copying the same php development files must be enough, but I've spend two hours with this stupid error.

When connecting to the website, I've got a dump of php code, initially I though that it was the full code of the file referenced but investigating for a long time make me realize that it was the code of a single file included in the initial file.

The problem was finally that I've wrongly started some files with:
<?
instead of the full
<?php

Problem solved, but a lot of more white hair growing from my skull :(

UPDATED: Finally I've activated the short_open_tag in the php.ini file because is used in other places (correctly) when I wanted to display variables in template files. Thanks Oriol.
At least I've changed the wrong php files with the short open tag at the beginning.

Hi!

An easy solution for this problem is to change the 'short_open_tag' directive, turning it on.

I know two ways to do it:
- In your .htaccess file: "php_flag short_open_tag on"
- Or in your php.ini file: "short_open_tag = on"

See you!
