Thanks, Eric. I kept the apache2-mpm-worker package and installed
php5-cgi. However, now I have the problem that my PHP files aren't
getting executed. When I set permissions to 755 (751 just gives me a
403 message), my browser recognizes the php files as
"application/x-httpd-php" and attempts to download them. I Googled
this issue and it looks like I should be adding something like the
following to my Apache conf file:

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 php
Action application/x-httpd-php5 /usr/local/bin/php-cgi

However, when I do this, Apache gives the following error message:

"Invalid command 'Action', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module
not included in the server configuration"

I Googled that error message, but I couldn't find a clear course of
action. So I come to this mailing list.

Does anyone know what might be going on?
