PHP pages do not display
If suddenly when you go to your page, you get nothing on the page. You can still get HTML to display, just not PHP.
To serve HTML pages to browsers, we don't associate the Apache processes with your 20 process limit. We have to have a process limit per user because this is a shared hosting environment. If we did not have limits not everyone could use PHP.
- Log in to your Bluehost cPanel account.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the error log and click on "Click here to see a list of your running processes".
- If you have about 20, and most of them look like they are "php index.php" and several days old, you can almost always assume that they have stalled and are no longer functioning properly.
- Click on the kill process link to the right of an old process, continue to do so until your PHP pages start working.
