AFAIK you only need to install some packages (I have apache/php/mysql, all
running nicely together on potato/woody)
apache, apache-doc, apache-common
php4 (optional php4-mysql)
Php will either detect you have apache, and ask if it should install
itself in apache, or you have to add 1 line to httpd.conf to load the php
module into apache (Loadmodule php4_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/libphp4.so)
If you also want mysql the php4-mysql package will load itself into php4
It didn't use to go so easy up to some 2 months ago i think, but last time
I tried it was just regular debian-packages to get it all going instead of
having to compile apache, php and mysql myself...
