I have the above installed but anytime I have a file with the php extention, I get the popup box asking if I want to download or open the file from it's location.  I've added the AddType application/x-httpd-php .php to the httpd.conf and copied php.ini-dist to /usr/local/lib/php.ini.

What am I missing?

Never mind.  For some reason restart wasn't loading the new module.
