Upgrade PHP in Red Hat Enterprise v4

I just installed Red Hat Enterprise v4.

- When I run rpm -qil php I get
php 4.3.9 installed
- When I run rpm -qil httpd I get
version 2.0.52

I tried upgrading to PHP 5.1.4 using the following configure command:
1.) ./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-mysql-dir=/usr/bin/mysql --with-zlib-dir=/usr/include
2.) make clean
3.) make
4.) make install

All ran fine.
When I restart apache:
service restart httpd
It starts with no errors, but my php pages are not executed so I get a blank screen. When I check the version of php with the command: php -version I get:
PHP 5.1.4 (cli) (built: May 7 2006 12:31:10)
Copyright (c) 1997-2006 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.1.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2006 Zend Technologies

I'm guessing I'm missing a step. Does anyone have any advise on this? Thanks in advanced.

connect PHP 5 to Apache 2 on Red Hat Enterprise v4

The problem is apache is not executing any php code. Instead it is prompting me to download the file. I know this is not a rare problem. So I'll think it through. Maybe a I should get high first?

Got Redhat Apache to compile PHP

In Red Hat Version 4 the httpd.conf file inports all configuration files held in the folder: /etc/httpd/conf.d/
In this folder is a php.conf file that makes reference to the PHP library. Once I changed this from version 4 to version 5 and restarted the httpd my PHP code started to work. I created a phpinfo.php file and was also able to see all my configurations.
The problem I am tackling now involves mysql. It appears that I don't have PHP5 configured correctly or mysql needs to point to the correct php library. Anyway it goes I can't communicate with mysql with my PHP code.
Oh well, getting high help the first time.......
Round 3
