This is more an apache than debian question.
1. checkout /var/log/apache/error_log to see if the problem comes from
a missing (bad directory) validate.php and a (maybe) more precise
2. in your httpd.conf, check that the site's directory (or the
DocumentRoot) has a line like :
3. Check that php code is ok for your httpd.conf : you should have
these lines uncommented :
LoadModule php4_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/libphp4.so
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
4. if all fails, send me (or the list if it's ok to send such
attachments to the list) the error_log line and your httpd.conf and I
(we) will try to help you further.
