Why my PHP code downloads instead of executing?

We fixed this! :)

We made some updates to PHP (well, we made two new "languages"):

https://repl.it/languages/php_cli - New and improved PHP language for command line interface shenanigans. Supports multiple files.
https://repl.it/languages/php7 - PHP Web servers! Just like other hosted repls, this allows you to write websites using PHP.

Enjoy!

Is it in an HTML repl? PHP needs to run on a server (back end) to work; can't run PHP on the client (with HTML/CSS/JS repls) :(
