I'm trying to get my apache2 to work under Ubuntu.

I've installed all packages from MySQL to PHP and Apache. When I program on PHP, the PHP scripts aren't recognized and aren't interpreted.

I uncommented the line but the Apache server is not running, so that when I run /etc/init.d/apache2 restart it fails and doesn't even start.

I've only installed the packages, nothing more than that.

Did you take a look at apache logs? – xmarston Dec 6 '13 at 13:06
You need to make sure is uncommented (or you have an entry in /etc/php.d). I'm not sure that uncommenting will do anything for you. – Machavity Dec 6 '13 at 13:19
