running php on web server

I'm not sure that I understand the server structure. I have a web space on www.tonylawson.plus.com and I have ftp'ed files to it, and can successfully view them on my local web browser. I now want to be able to run php files on the web server. I have activated msql and uploaded a php file, but nothing happens when I try to run it with a url, say, http:/www.tonylawson.plus.com/test.php
Is php activated? Have I put the files on the wrong server?
thanks

I signed up for the free preview of payh domestic. Seems to be what I was looking for. Thanks for the nudge in the correct direction.

I have not tested the preview version of the payh yet, But it is more familiar to what I would expect, and I suspect that you might find the same. I am used to cPanel, but plesk will do just fine. I have no idea if plusnet intend charging for this service, I hope not. It's the first free bit of web space that comes with a broadband connection that actually looks useful. Give it a try, see what you think.

PS btw, plusnet say it takes up to 5 days to set up your space. For me it took less than 24 hours.  Wink
