What's the Debian way to install LAMP?

hi.  i have debian 2.2, kernel-2.2.17 with 128MB ram and 6GB hd (lots of
free space).  wanting to install LAMP the debian way, i did the ff:

apt-get install apache mysql-server mysql-client

tested the installation by doing "lynx http://localhost/"; which shows
the usual gnu and penguin graphic.  i still don't know how to test mysql
from apache though.

so afterwards i did an "apt-get install php4", added:

LoadModule php4_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/libphp4.so

in /etc/apache/httpd.conf and i also did add:

AddType application/x-httpd-php4 .php4

in /etc/apache/srm.conf so that php4 will work with apache.

now the problem is my test2.php file won't connect to mysql database i
created manually.  it gives an "the connection was refused when
attempting to contact localhost".  i went thru the php3-doc (the only
available doc for the php4.deb package) and i can't get any more info on
why it won't connect.  to be sure that the password is right i login to
mysql from the shell (mysql -u root -p) and i was able to connect/login.

what am i missing here?  attached below is my test2.php

//---------- DATABASE CONNECTION ------------//
$mysql_link = mysql_connect ($dbhost,$dbuser,$dbpass) or die ("Could not connect");
$column = mysql_list_fields($dbname,$dbtable,$mysql_link);
$sql = "select * from $dbtable";
$result = mysql_db_query($dbname,$sql);
<table bgcolor="black">
<table><!---- Inside Table ---->
while($value = mysql_fetch_array($result))
print "<tr BGCOLOR=YELLOW>";
//This loop goes through the columns and prints
//each value
for ($i=0; $i < mysql_num_fields($column); $i++)
print "<td> $value[$i] </td>";
print "</tr>";
</table><!---- Inside Table ---->
