I don't know what you have in .htaccess file, but you need something 
like this in httpd.conf and restart Apache

LoadModule php5_module        libexec/apache22/

AddType application/x-httpd-php .html

(if you need *.html files processed by PHP interpeter)

Also look in to your files to PHP open tag, if you are using <? (short 
open tag), you need short_opent_tag = On in your php.ini file
