Hi. I am trying to get apache 2.2 + php + gd working on a Mac OS X
Server 10.5.6 (all updates applied, system apache disabled).

Using MacPorts 1.8.1 I installed the following ports:

  apache2 @2.2.13_2+darwin+darwin_9+preforkmpm (active)
  apr @1.3.8_0 (active)
  apr-util @1.3.9_0 (active)
  autoconf @2.64_2 (active)
  autoconf213 @2.13_1 (active)
  automake @1.11_0 (active)
  bzip2 @1.0.5_3+darwin (active)
  db46 @4.6.21_5 (active)
  expat @2.0.1_0 (active)
  freetype @2.3.9_1+macosx (active)
  gawk @3.1.7_0 (active)
  gettext @0.17_4 (active)
  gperf @3.0.4_0 (active)
  gsed @4.2.1_0 (active)
  help2man @1.36.4_1 (active)
  jpeg @6b_3 (active)
  libiconv @1.13_0 (active)
  libmcrypt @2.5.8_1 (active)
  libpng @1.2.38_0 (active)
  libtool @2.2.6a_0 (active)
  libxml2 @2.7.5_0 (active)
  m4 @1.4.13_0 (active)
  mhash @ (active)
  ncurses @5.7_0 (active)
  ncursesw @5.7_0 (active)
  openssl @0.9.8k_0+darwin (active)
  p5-locale-gettext @1.05_0 (active)
  p7zip @9.04_0 (active)
  pcre @7.9_0 (active)
  perl5 @5.8.9_0 (active)
  perl5.8 @5.8.9_3 (active)
  php5 @5.3.0_2+apache2+macosx (active)
  php5-gd @5.3.0_0 (active)
  pkgconfig @0.23_1 (active)
  readline @6.0.000_2+darwin (active)
  sqlite3 @3.6.18_0 (active)
  zlib @1.2.3_3 (active)

I "activated" php5 module as per instructions received during port

   cd /opt/local/apache/modules
   /opt/local/apache2/bin/apxs -a -e -n "php5" libphp5.so

Apache starts and runs fine and server html pages. However when loading
test.php containing <? phpinfo() ?>, I get a blank page. No error
messages in the logs. Page source shows <? phpinfo() ?> and nothing else.

If I load the system php module (/usr/libexec/apache2/libphp5.so), I the
php info page.

Any ideas? Thanks.
