A PHP script should be a simple text file which can be opened in any text editor. To interpret the file, you need a reference on the PHP language reference.

Double clicking on the file (it will have a blue php icon) should load it into gedit (in cinnamon)

Thanks for these - found the problem - the PHP file was incomplete.
I had to click on link in Webpage to open a doc - this proved to be incomplete .
