Simple configuration needed.  Note that this is PHP4.

***These are my comments***  (be sure not to put _them_
into your httpd.conf).


#grep -A 2 php /usr/local/etc/apache/httpd.conf

LoadModule php4_module        /usr/local/libexec/apache/
    ***this is necessary.***

AddModule mod_php4.c
   ***so is this.***

        <IfModule mod_php4.c>
            DirectoryIndex index.php index.html

   ***tells Apache to use "index.php" as the preferred index,
          if not present, then use "index.html" if it exists***

    <IfModule mod_php4.c>
        AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .html .asp .php3
        AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

   ***a little overkill, mostly for humor.  My development server
treats files ending in "php", "html" and "asp" as php files and
parses them looking for PHP (mostly as a political statement).***


Basically, you must have 1]LoadModule 2]AddModule and
3]AddType declarations in httpd.conf, then restart Apache
and your scripts should work fine.
