centos 5: config apache to execute php scripts/pages


most of my googling odysseies lead me to articles which talk about compiling apache & php from the source as this is touted to be more flexible. But the problem we have is this...we already have an apache 2 web server running. Now how do we serve php pages of it...

PS: i believe we even have php installed...

If you already have php installed it should work out of the box, you do not need to do anything.

Check using

Code:
rpm -qi php
cat /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf

Here is the output of both commands:

Code:
$ rpm -qi php
The php package contains the module which adds support for the PHP
language to Apache HTTP Server.

Summary     : The PHP HTML-embedded scripting language. (PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor)
Description :
PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language. PHP attempts to make it
easy for developers to write dynamically generated webpages. PHP also
offers built-in database integration for several commercial and
non-commercial database management systems, so writing a
database-enabled webpage with PHP is fairly simple. The most common
use of PHP coding is probably as a replacement for CGI scripts.

The php package contains the module which adds support for the PHP
language to Apache HTTP Server.
Code:
$ cat /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf
#
# PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language which attempts to make it
# easy for developers to write dynamically generated webpages.
#

LoadModule php5_module modules/libphp5.so

#
# Cause the PHP interpreter to handle files with a .php extension.
#
AddHandler php5-script .php
AddType text/html .php

#
# Add index.php to the list of files that will be served as directory
# indexes.
#
DirectoryIndex index.php

#
# Uncomment the following line to allow PHP to pretty-print .phps
# files as PHP source code:
#
#AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
Yet I am not getting the php page served...don't know if the php code is incorrect either...pasting the code here for reference:

PHP Code:
<html>
<body>

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

</body>
</html>

Thanx tht worked!!!

Don't understand those permissions I've to set tho. Are there any articles that can come in handy?

Isn't there a more direct way? I mean I am looking at directly creating php files and expecting them to get deployed...straight. So those files should have the correct permissions...I don't want to create a file and then change its permission always...OR, is this how its done always?!!
