Question messed up apache2-php5 installation

Hello everyone and a happy 2009 (this is my first post for this year)

After upgrading some of my virtual users/perfect server setups to 8.10 I've somehow managed to mess my apache configuration. I've googled around and tried a couple of things but it didn't get the job done

First things first:

I cannot get php to work properly and all php files offer download instead of open/run in browsers. I need some help to troubleshoot this one.

As I said system is upgraded to latest 8.10, apache is:

Apache/2.2.9 (Ubuntu) mod_python/3.3.1 Python/2.5.2 mod_ruby/1.2.6 Ruby/1.8.7(2008-08-11) mod_ssl/2.2.9 OpenSSL/0.9.8g

my apache.conf:

Code:
ServerRoot "/etc/apache2"

LockFile /var/lock/apache2/accept.lock

PidFile ${APACHE_PID_FILE}

Timeout 300
KeepAlive On
MaxKeepAliveRequests 100
KeepAliveTimeout 15

<IfModule mpm_prefork_module>
    StartServers          5
    MinSpareServers       5
    MaxSpareServers      10
    MaxClients          150
    MaxRequestsPerChild   0
</IfModule>

<IfModule mpm_worker_module>
    StartServers          2
    MaxClients          150
    MinSpareThreads      25
    MaxSpareThreads      75 
    ThreadsPerChild      25
    MaxRequestsPerChild   0
</IfModule>

# These need to be set in /etc/apache2/envvars
User ${APACHE_RUN_USER}
Group ${APACHE_RUN_GROUP}

AccessFileName .htaccess

<Files ~ "^\.ht">
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
</Files>

DefaultType text/plain

HostnameLookups Off

ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error.log

# Include generic snippets of statements

# Include the virtual host configurations:
Include /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/
...is default, (I simply removed most of the comments here just to make it short)

I have defaults in httpd.conf (empty) and my ports.conf:

Code:
# If you just change the port or add more ports here, you will likely also
# have to change the VirtualHost statement in
# /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default

NameVirtualHost *:80
Listen 80

<IfModule mod_ssl.c>
    # SSL name based virtual hosts are not yet supported, therefore no
    # NameVirtualHost statement here
    Listen 443
</IfModule>
also my mime.types:

Code:
...
application/x-httpd-php                phtml pht php
application/x-httpd-php-source            phps
application/x-httpd-php3            php3
application/x-httpd-php3-preprocessed        php3p
application/x-httpd-php4            php4
...
I have not disabled php globally as the perfect server setup instructs, since I have no ISPconfig installed and the servers only serve one domain

What might I be overlooking here?

Thanx in advance.

Thumbs up Solved this one! Read on to see how...

trying 'a2enmod php5' spits:

Code:
ERROR: Module php5 does not exist!
Thought I've missed something, so I tried (re)installing libapache2-mod-php5 plus some more php5 stuff:

Code:
apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5 php5 php5-common php5-curl php5-dev php5-gd php5-imagick php5-mcrypt php5-memcache php5-mhash php5-mysql php5-pspell php5-snmp php5-sqlite php5-xmlrpc php5-xsl

libapache2-mod-php5 is already the newest version.
php5 is already the newest version.
php5-common is already the newest version.
php5-curl is already the newest version.
php5-dev is already the newest version.
php5-gd is already the newest version.
php5-imagick is already the newest version.
php5-mcrypt is already the newest version.
php5-memcache is already the newest version.

php5-sqlite is already the newest version.
php5-xmlrpc is already the newest version.
php5-xsl is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
It turns out (as I knew beforehand) they were already installed.

This is what my mods-available & mods-enabled look like:

...well the php5.conf seemed to be the only file in mods-enabled (all others ware symlinks to their corresponding file in /etc/apache2/mods-available) and I believe it got there because I followed some advice on editing /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php5.conf.

I believe that all a2enmod does is simply create those symlinks in mods-enabled for each mod you choose to enable and that a2dismod simply removes symlinks pointing to mods-available once you choose to remove a module.

So, I've moved php5.conf in mods-available and tried 'a2enmod php5' once again. Same 'Module php5 does not exist!' error (perhaps that php5.load file missing?). Then, I created a symlink pointing to it in mods-enabled myself and tried reloading apache2.

Code:
mv /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php5.conf  /etc/apache2/mods-available

cd /etc/apache2/mods-enabled
ln -s ../mods-available/php5.conf php5.conf
Anyway, here is what my php5.conf looks like (I think it is all defaults):

Code:
<IfModule mod_php5.c>
  AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml .php3
  AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
</IfModule>
I don't know if there's supposed to be a php5.load file as well in mods-available, but there is none. Other modules' .load files seem to load .so files that reside in /usr/lib/apache2/modules/ and in there resides a libphp5.so(GBP 4.69) file. So, I became really creative and created a 'php.load' file in mods-available:

Code:
LoadModule php5_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/libphp5.so
Then as if it was magic:

Code:
a2enmod php5
Enabling module php5.
Run '/etc/init.d/apache2 restart' to activate new configuration!
... and finally all worked fine! Yhey!!

Hope this will help people having the same issue in the future.
