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 extension=mysql.so 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 php.so is uncommented (or you have an entry in /etc/php.d). I'm not sure that uncommenting mysql.so will do anything for you. –  Machavity Dec 6 '13 at 13:19
