       Did you have PHP installed? If not, then please install PHP first.
    rpm -qa | grep -i php
    it will tell you if the PHP is installed or not.

    this is either running on default configuration (without php.ini file - but i'm not sure it is possible at all) or the php.ini has to be somewhere.
    Try to look at /etc and /etc/php (you said tghat you already looked ther, but do it once more)
    if it will not help try to (as root):
    find / -name php.ini
    if it will not find anything try to copy some other php.ini into /etc, change some settings, restart php and check if YOUR NEW settings are working

    hope this helps
