That's how mine is set up. The AddType statements are in the php.conf file.
The other stuff is in the main conf file.

I found one here, although I've never heard of this site (ie, I don't know
if this is a safe place to download from):


>From a quick Google search, I gather that most Redhat 8 people build PHP
4.3 from a source rpm, but I don't know where they got it from. When I
built Apache 2 and PHP 4.3, I just built both from source (on Redhat 7.3).
I don't think I had any problems, but this was last year, so my memory
isn't that good. :P
