I just setup my DreamHost account yesterday and today I’m trying to get a page working using an XHTML doctype and PHP directives. Because the XML doctype starts with “<?”, PHP spits out an error. I looked around on Google Groups and found that if I disable “short tags”, then I won’t get the parse error. According to http://www.php.net/manual/en/language.basic-syntax.php, I have to edit the php.ini file to do this.
Is this something that I can do or does it have to be done for the entire server?
