apache not able to recognize php files

I just installed apache 2.0.48 and php4.3.x.x. After every thing is done, I try:
http://locahost/~user/test.php and it says,
"The file is of type application/x-httpd-php and Mozilla does not know how to handle this file type". Could you please tell me what is wrong.

I added This line: AddType application/x-httpd-php .php to httpd.conf already.

Hello phamtranquocvie,

you should add this line to the 'mime.types' file:

application/x-httpd-php php

your httpd.conf should have these lines:

LoadModule php4_module libexec/
AddModule mod_php4.c

*** EDIT ***
or did they change the configuration files with apache 2 so much? this is for apache 1.3.27...

"localhost" in http://localhost/~me/file.php
is not resolving to your ip number. Use
the actual IP number "" or other. will work OK.
