Clean Mandrake 9.1 install and Apache

If you do a fresh 9.1 install, Mandrake installs the Apache 2 webserver.

Apache 2 radically changes where it puts its config files - rather than a single httpd.conf file, the various sections are now split into multiple conf files.

I had a problem getting apache to recognise .htm files as php. Here's how I solved it.

Go to /etc/httpd/conf.d
Edit 75_mod_php.conf
Add the following line in the section.
AddType application/x-httpd-php .htm

Restart apache (apachectl restart)

The default Apache 2 config is placed in
and its name is httpd2.conf
