  Check out, it is very good source of
information for setting up PHP and Apache. We setup Apache, PHP3 and
MySQL here at work, and it was a bit of challenge to get it all working. I
needed all of these components for our internal web based email using IMP.
  We didn't do alot of PHP programing, but during the setup I ran some
test PHP scripts to get things up and running. The scripts I used were
embedded in html (or php3) code like the following:

 <TITLE>Our first PHP3.0 script</TITLE>
 <CENTER>Our first PHP3.0 script</CENTER>

 /* the above "<?" signals that the PHP script has begun */
 $today = date("Y-m-d");

 PRINT "<CENTER>Today is: $today.</CENTER>";

 # the following "?>" closes the script


There is also a nifty php command that you can include into the test
program that will show how Apache is confiugred:


(Pulled this out of the INSTALL.REDHAT file under PHP)

Hope this helps,
