With apache2, there should be symlinks in /etc/apache2/mods-enabled to
../mods-available/php5.{load,conf} and /etc/apache2/mods-available
should contain the php5.{load,conf} files. These should be owned by
libapache2-mod-php5 (doing dpkg -S /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php5.conf
or dpkg -L libapach2-mod-php5 should clarify this).

If the symlinks aren't there, they need to be added. You could do this
yourself, but the apache2 package comes with a script to manage this. I
don't use apache2 and I can't remember what it's called.  I only assume
that the procedure is detailed in /usr/share/doc/apache2 somewhere.
