    I have the same problem from time to time, its working normally for weeks, and suddenly a php FIle is downloaded instead of showing the website... Restarting Apache normally helps, but its disturbing... could there be another cause? I suspect something cache related. When it happens it happens on several sites, all WordPress.

    I've updated to Plesk 18.0.30

    i have the same problem with downloading the PHP Files which is really a security risk!!!

    PHP was enabled PHP-FastCGI switched to PHP-FPM no success.

    Hello Patrick Hofmann 

    Maybe this happens during high load. There's a possibility that solution from this article would help: https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/214528405

    Patrick and Jan, in case these solutions won't help, submit support requests to Plesk or our partner depending on where the license was purchased.

    Well for me the files are empty, so at least its not a securety risk... 

    I will take a look at the max children settings, it sounds somewhat plausible, espevcially as it is gone after a restart of apache. However i did not see this message in the logfiles.....

    Thanks for pointing this out!

    I'm having the same issue with one domain we are hosting. It's downloading an empty file with no extension. I've rebooted, change handlers, all components are updated. Is there any solution that works?

    Another Update from my side: Currently i am doing support for 4 Plesk servers and another server started showing this behavior "Instead of showing a webpage downloading a file with is called "Download". The solution was to disable the nginx Cache for this site, now it works. Neither a service nor a server restart helped... So it seems there is something funny going on with the nginx caching. Since i disabled it it works like intended again. 

     

    Just thought i let you know :)
