How did you set up PHP???
First you tell you installed Apache-modules, second you're writing about 'sent
to PHP' & 'Error 500'.
The second point looks like you could find the error in error-logs of Apache
because it seems .php is threaded as CGI (therefor in every .php-file should
be a first line like
where ever the PHP-binary is located)
But installing the Apache-modules makes it senseless to proceed .php as CGI

Have a look in your Apache-configuration file. Search for 'php'.
Is there a line like:

LoadModule php3_module        /etc/httpd/modules/libphp3.so
LoadModule php4_module        /etc/httpd/modules/libphp4.so 


AddModule mod_php3.c
AddModule mod_php4.c

if so there should also be following lines:

<IfModule mod_php3.c>
  AddType application/x-httpd-php3 .php3 
  AddType application/x-httpd-php3-source .php3s 


<IfModule mod_php4.c>
  AddType application/x-httpd-php .php 
  AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps 

If in your Apache-configuration there is a line like

AddHandler cgi-script .php

you should remove it and instead switch to LoadModules-Syntax.

Best regards
