trying to upgrade to apache2/php5 - going insane

Running debian 4.0 testing.

I had apache/php4 working fine.

I removed them and installed apache2/php5.

php5 seems to work.

# php -v
PHP 5.2.3-1+b1 (cli) (built: Jun 21 2007 20:58:46)
Copyright (c) 1997-2007 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.2.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2007 Zend Technologies

I even go apache2 to work, but not with php.

Even though I removed apache, the fact that it existed, I think, screws up apache2. For example, no httpd.conf was created. I tried removing the /etc/apache/ directory, but then apache2 would not install at all.

I have tried installed, uninstalled, re-installed, many times. Have tried googling, and reading through these posts. I just can't figure this out.

Possible forum to ask

This person has a website for Apache on Windows, but maybe someone there would have experience with both Windows and Linux. They have helped solve several problems for me.

Note: This is a tech person's personal site to help other tech people, so please note it is not a professional support site, but there are helpful people there. Generally it's very good, as the webmaster himself wrote a module to get newer versions of PHP and Apache working together on Windows (I was actually pointed there from Apache's website some time ago).
