Ok Raoul a quick check on Synaptic shows that both libapache2-mod-php5
and php5-mysql are installed.
http://localhost/phpmyadmin brings up the pretty GUI requiering a
username and password.

After entering the password I get #2002 - The server is not responding
(or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)

http://localhost brings up "IT WORKS!" which is the default html file
residing in /var/www

My first priorty is to ensure that Apache is working and then to access
the www file.
