You need to add the following line in the corresponding Directory directive:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

This line enables the execition of the php files in the indicated directory path.

Have a look at this link.

Tnx Khaled,btw what is " corresponding Directory directive" and where to find that file. Tnx! –  DK-System Dec 1 '10 at 9:27
@DK-System: Look for a "Directory" directive in your apache config files. Then, add this type inside it. You may be able to do it from a web interface. –  Khaled Dec 1 '10 at 9:29
I was trying to find directory called "directive" but nothing.I have searched on /etc/apache5/ and in var/www/vhost/ but there is nothing like directivi folder. –  DK-System Dec 1 '10 at 9:47
