Can't install php, libmm11 not installable


I am trying to install tutos (from tutos.org ) on my debian sarge machine (running postgresql and apache1.3) which requires php4 or php5. I could not get php5 installed (see below) but was able to get php4 installed. I still cannot get php pages to display (when i go to the site, it downloads the php source code file to my pc instead).

I did uncomment the following lines in /etc/apache/httpd.conf:

Code:
# And for PHP 4.x, use:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
below is the error i get trying to do:

apt-get install php5
and also
apt-get install libapache-mod-php4

Code:
# apt-get install php5
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  php5: Depends: libmm11 but it is not installable
E: Broken packages

I'm not sure if i missed something in a configuration file, if i am not loading a php module or if i mixed up debian stages (stable and testing).

/etc/apt/sources.list
Code:
      1 #deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main
      2
      3 deb ftp://debian.savoirfairelinux.net/debian/ testing main
      4 deb http://packages.dotdeb.org ./
      5 deb http://debian.yorku.ca/debian/ testing main
      6 deb-src http://debian.yorku.ca/debian/ testing main
      7
      8 deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main
      9 deb http://www.imoqland.com/debs/skyhusker/woody/ ./

     17 #deb-src ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
     18 deb ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
     19 deb-src ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
     20 deb http://people.debian.org/~dexter php5 sid
Thank you for your help in advance.

It was not there, but I added it and got the following error:

root:/etc/apache # /etc/init.d/apache restart
Configuration syntax error detected. Not reloading.

Syntax error on line 26 of /etc/apache/modules.conf:
Cannot load /usr/lib/apache/1.3/libphp4.so into server: /usr/lib/apache/1.3/libphp4.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So it's obviously not installed, what am I missing?

that worked, thanks!

note: to solve my problem, i had to remove everything first and then install one thing at a time (to fix dependencies)
