You need to tell apache about mod_php4.  In apache2, I have these extra
lines in the configuration file.

LoadModule php4_module        libexec/apache2/libphp4.so

DirectoryIndex index.html index.html.var index.php

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

You don't want to have 'AddHandler php .php' in httpd.conf  In an earlier
version of php4, I did have that and it worked fine, but when I upgraded
php4 it stopped working (showed code only like it is for you), so I had to
take out that line.
