Apache problems with

I'm running a Debian Sarge box with Debian Main branch, in addition to the dotdeb respiratory's for MySQL5 and php5.

I haven't updated my software in a few months so I performed a apt-get dist-upgrade.

Everything went fine except now my apache2 installation is broken.

Another thing is that I'm using ISPConfig to manage my web server.

My problem is that when I attempt to start apache I get the following error:
# apache2
apache2: Syntax error on line 116 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: Syntax error on line 1 of /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php5.load: API module structure `php5_module' in file /usr/lib/apache2/modules/ is garbled - perhaps this is not an Apache module DSO?
I'm thinking I'll have to recompile php5, but I'm really not very knowledgeable about this, since I use ISPConfig to mange most of it. Is there a simple way I can just recompile or download it or what? I'm a little scared of compiling it manually since I've been getting php5 from dotdeb as binaries. I'm not really sure how I managed to mess it all up, and my google searching hasn't helped.

Thanks for looking at my question .

Honestly, I would recompile php5. Why not? You won't break anything else since apache is broken anyhow. If your scared about overwriting files, make a tar of your existing apache tree. Compiling code is easier than you think .
