At time you may be faced with the issue of <? phpinfo(); ?> not working or its returning black page. I ran into this issue on my AlmaLinux system. I run laravel app to be specific.

If you have faced this issue it means that is the reason why you are here and we are going to solve the issues together.

Now how do you fix <? phpinfo(); ?> now working issue on your system? Look below
