O had a similar problem with apache and php. The problem was related to
the order of installation. Which I solved by re-installing apache php
and mysql, it looked like apache was not recognising the it should run
the php script etc, but just served it up as a html page.

Do you have a mods-enabled folder in /etc/apache2 ? It should contain
the php conf files etc. These maybe missing or corrupt.

Hope this helps.
