RedHat 7.2 RPM with PostgreSQL 7.1.x and PHP 4.0.6

Page 111 of "PHP and PostgreSQL", this form displays in Mozilla. The submit 
button is expected to run a script called reaction.php but it opens the 
script and displays the code. The response is the same with or without 
variable input.

I changed the script file to executable:  no effect.

I can run 'reaction.php' from the shell and it works.
What is the problem here?
     A Simple Form
     <form action="reaction.php" method="post">
          <input type="text" name="field_1" size="10"><br><br>
          <input type="submit" name="submitbutton">


     if     ($field_1)
            echo "field_1: $field_1";
            echo "nothing has been passed to this script";
run as stand alone php file

bash-2.05$ php < reaction.php
X-Powered-By: PHP/4.0.6
Content-type: text/html
nothing has been passed to this script


     AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
         (appears as above plus an entry for each of php2,3,&4)
     LoadModule php4_module        modules/libphp4.so
     LoadModule php_module         modules/mod_php.so

These were all uncommented in the RPM installation of RedHat 7.2.
Somehow PHP is partially working...
Any suggestions?

I can create forms in php and tables in PostgreSQL but according to 
phpinfo(), php is not configured for PostfreSQL.

If I survive this problem, that one is on the horizon. Does anyone have a 
generic list of things to do after an RPM installation of RedHat Linux 7.2 
in order to use PHP with PostgreSQL?
