Presumably, the "code" you had to write in the httpd.conf file is something like:
LoadModule php4_module modules/libphp4.so
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php4 .php3 .phtml
# PHP Syntax Coloring (recommended):
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source phps
after you made the appropriate adjustments to the httpd.conf, did you RESTART apache? (In windows, you probably need to reboot).
Check you error log to see if there are any errors that might be helpful in resolving the issue.
I find the easiest way to test a PHP install is to create a small test
and call it phpinfo.php If you can call this and see ALOT of PHP information, your PHP is working.
Hope this helps.
