[FX.php List] [OFF] Upgrading to PHP 5 on a Mac OS X Tiger server

I've got a server running OS X Server Tiger, and I installed PHP 5.2.4  
on it yesterday, but after the install, it doesn't start up.

Is there a terminal command that I need to invoke to tell the server  
to start using PHP 5? I turned off PHP 4 in Server Admin, but when I  
do that I have no PHP at all.

I've done this upgrade on another machine but don't remember what I  
did to get PHP 5 to start; I seem to recall that it just started  
without any fuss.

Any help would be mucho appreciated; I've got a client wanting to do  
something that (supposedly) requires PHP 5.
