Can't find doc or tutorial on how to add PHP5 to Apache 1.

I've googled and searched here, but I can't find the information. I'm sure this is a simple procedure, but no idea what it is. I already have PHP5 and apache 1 installed. I just don't know how to make them work together.

Any help is appreciated.

Depending on your distro and whether you're using a package manager (and which one), most pkg managers should do it automatically.

I'm pretty sure you should be able to find all the docs you need between the following 3 sites:

Did you look at the official PHP documentation on this subject?

To start, it would help for you to provide some details:
  1. How is apache installed -- is it through a package manager (rpm or apt, ofr example) or did you download and compile it from source?
  2. Are you looking to have Apache1 working with PHP5 only or also with MySQL? If so, what versions do you have installed, or plan to install -- specifically (Apache 1.xx, PHP 5.xx, MySQL x.xx).
  3. Is there any specific software you plan to use once PHP5 and Apache are setup?

Thanks for the replies.

I did try both of those websites, but neither had documentation for apache 1.3 and php5 together. I've tried to extrapolate from different versions but with no success.

I'm now trying to do this on Ubuntu Feisty, using apt-get to install apache and php, but I'm open to alternative installation methods.

If I simply type:

$sudo apt-get install apache


$sudo apt-get install php5

my php files are treated as uploads by a browser (which doesn't do that on properly setup sites).

Yes, I would like to use mysql. The reason I haven't gone for a more express LAMP installation is that lamp--I believe--installs apache2, and also because this is somewhat of an academic exercise for me. I'd like to learn a little about apache and how it's modules are handled, and also get php5 running at the same time.
