there is no possibility to turn on something which does not exists.

you need to know the history:
first this was a newsgroup, then the newsgroup (NG) was synchronized 
with a mailinglist (ML), years later there was a forum attached (which 
was feature reduced to match the restrictions of newsgroup and mailinglist)

hence the proposal: store screenshots anywhere and post a link (because 
of spammers you are only allowed to post links after your third posting, 
but we humans can write syntactically wrong links, which everyone can 
otherwise most people (like me ;-) ) see just a bunch of characters like 
seen beyond.

and for HTML: if you enter HTML in the forum that might be escaped, but 
others answering from NG or ML may insert pure HTML which is not escaped 
in the forum and you will see nothing.
at least formatting and indention ist lost.
so: you may use a gist.

php consist also of a core and additional packages (like extensions).
what packages are available you can see in the INSTAL TOOL in the info 
section where a complete php_info is available:
System environment, go to the bottom and expand the 'PHP info'-block.

as speaking of the Install-Tool:
have you checked all avallaible test for ok?
