Ok. Not easy but if you stick with it you'll be fine. I'n no pro on these either but I got it working.
For PHP4 people:
If your missing your httpd.conf file and if you were unsuccessful when you made a back up, the best thing to do is to create a new mac user for your computer and start again.
For PHP5 People.
Hopefully you have backed up your original httpd.conf with the line below.
sudo cp /etc/httpd/httpd.conf /etc/httpd/httpd.conf.original
If you recall when you did this you went through your pico and took out the hash marks at:
LoadModule php4_module
AddModule mod_php4.c
I'm guessing you have now installed entropy to get php5. Logic thinking tells me if you have both php4 and php5 running then this is going to cause problems.
If you have configured your php5 correctly all you will need to do now is revers the httpd.conf copy file:
sudo cp /etc/httpd/httpd.conf.original /etc/httpd/httpd.conf
or open up the httpd.conf file and add the hashes back.
When you finish all that try and restart apache with;
sudo apachectl restart
If your still having problems try and add a new user to your computer. Good luck
