IIRC, following /usr/share/doc/README.Debian.gz has 4 simple steps that
should get you up and running with little trouble.

I only have apache and php4 installed.  I don't think you need php4-cgi.

Also, I think Debian's /etc/mime.types has all that's necessary, without
needing any extra AddType handlers in httpd.conf; I only have
"TypesConfig /etc/mime.types", and no uncommented AddHandler statements
related to php.

Just make sure you have the LoadModule line uncommented.

good times,
Vineet
