you need to execute the apache daemon with an option to use PHP, you will have an apache options variable set at some point in the configuration, to which you want to add " -DPHP4" or somethign very similar. on my gentoo system, this file is /etc/apache.d/apache.conf i believe.

Hi, did you try to check whether the httpd is already running? (open a browser window and type http://localhost).
If it's not running, you should do, as root:
$ /apache_install_path/bin/apachectl start

This works on SuSE... not sure about RH.

Then you can configure your linux box to automatically start Apache.

On the web there's plenty of documents detailing all necessary steps... Try googling a bit!
