grep php /etc/apache/httpd.conf (or wherever you keep your httpd.conf)

Post the output here. Best guess is that you just need to add a couple of lines.

Open up your text editor. Type the following:
PHP Code:
<?php
phpinfo
();
?>
Then save it in /var/www/html/ as phpinfo.php

Then open up your browser and go to http://localhost/phpinfo.php

You need to add this line:
Code:
LoadModule php4_module        libexec/libphp4.so
to load the php module, and this one:
Code:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
So apache knows that files with a .php extension should be sent through the php interpreter.

Well, your httpd.conf is a little strange, usually there is an addtype section ie:
Code:
# AddType allows you to tweak mime.types without actually editing it, or to
# make certain files to be certain types.
#
AddType application/x-tar .tgz
AddType image/x-icon .ico
but it is not in any other directive so you can most likely just add it to the bottom of the file.

Don't put it in the addmodule section.

I'm sorry, I gave you bunk advice, it needs to be inside the <IfModule mod_mime.c> directive...sorry
