I had installed version 5.3.2 but had to downgrade to 5.2.6 for development purposes.

I uninstalled php 5.3.2,

then rebooted the computer,

then tried installing 5.2.6, an error came up, it said install xml2,

I did, still didn't work, I installed xml2 devel and php installed.

Then I ran a make test that php installation recommended, I forgot to copy the results.

I tried loading a php page and it gave me the option to download the php file instead, because it didn't recognize what a php file was.

I looked at apache modules, it does not contain a php module.

I've tried reinstalling php, that didn't change anything. Any ideas? suggestions? How to get the module to load in apache?

Be more specific. Is this Windows? Linux? Solaris?... By "install" did you mean a package manager or did you compile it yourself?... –  dog Apr 8 '11 at 22:30
Oh I'm sorry, I'm using Linux Fedora 14. I am running everything through terminal/ssh/putty. I use yum install for all the stuff. –  Darius Apr 8 '11 at 22:41
