Yep. Apache is up and running. The footer above is from a directory
listing on the server.

It's installed, but doesn't run. I've just been testing with a simple
script: <?php phpinfo(); ?>

Ahh... yes, I forgot about that.
However, this returns a blank link (no config dialogs are presented).
# dpkg-reconfigure php5 apache2
I went ahead and removed php5-mysql for the time being.
Jon, what kind of script are you referring to? The first time I
installed php5 (from dotdeb), it automatically prompted me to config
php5, and everything worked w/o any manual intervention. Switching back
to php4 (which I did on a whim because php's mysql_pconnect() didn't
work anymore) is where the problems started.
Anyway, thanks again,
