Apache not running php scripts

I updated my PHP to 4.3.4, system is running it correctly, but Apache loads .php files as plain text.

Where is this configured?

Hello Seventh ,
look in httpd.conf for
LoadModule /your/path/to/your/modules/

In addition to the above, add these lines to httpd.conf, if you search down the file you will see where the right place to put them is:

AddModule mod_php4.c
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

I have that same problem before, what i did i search /etc/apache/httpd.conf and look this:

# ==> mod_php configuration settings <==
# PACKAGES REQUIRED: openssl-solibs (A series) and/or openssl (N series),
# mysql (AP series), gmp (L series), and apache (N series)
#Include /etc/apache/mod_php.conf

# ==> mod_ssl configuration settings <==
# PACKAGES REQUIRED: apache (N series) and openssl (N series)
#Include /etc/apache/mod_ssl.conf

I uncomment this # in the 2 Lines:

Include /etc/apache/mod_php.conf

Include /etc/apache/mod_ssl.conf

And stop my apache, and start it again, then it loads the new modules. And i could now install any php stuff. instead of trying to download a text file like before.
