[thelist] PHP file association

Is this server local or hosting to the outside world?  One simple thing 
to try would be giving out the URL and seeing if someone else gets the 
same problem.

It sounds like a problem with your webserver and PHP.  If you're using 
Apache, this might help: 
  The problem sounds slightly different but I'm betting it's a similar 
solution.  Assuming this is a local Windows/apache/php install, you 
might want to just uninstall and reinstall (don't forget to backup 
stuff).  You'll never know exactly what went wrong but it might be 
faster. ;)
