There are two issues here.

(1) Have you enabled the php4 modules?
	Try running a2enmod php4 and force-reload the server

You can check if that succeeded if the php4 files are symlinked in the
/etc/apache/mods-enabled directory

(2) In /etc/apache2/mods-available/php4.conf there should be a line like
	AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml .php3

Please check that it is there.



PS: My lines are from php5 so it might vary slightly.
