php showing as text

I installed postfixadmin on a new AWS instance.  When I go to http://<IP address>/postfixadmin/setup.php I see the text of the file instead of it working as a php file.

I have the following code in my httpd.conf and have verified that AWS has php installed:
<FilesMatch "\.ph(p[2-6]?|tml)$">
    SetHandler application/x-httpd-php

Most recent installs of Apache with PHP have a separate 'conf' file to enable PHP.  Try removing that code and reboot the server and see if you can run 'phpinfo();'.

Turns out my problem was that php wasn't installed correctly.  As soon as I ran "php -v" to get the php version number, I received a command not found message which tipped me off that it was my install.  Here's what worked to fix the bad install on AWS:
yum remove php httpd php-cli php-xml php-common httpd-tools
yum install php55 php55-mysql php55-pdo
