IIRC, the response I gave was to a comment that said that the php3 module
installed _and_activated_ itself.  Apache 1.3.x shared modules compile and
install through a tool called apxs (think of it as libtool for Apache

At install time (apxs -i), you can have it not add the LoadModule line to
httpd.conf, add the line but commented out (-A), or add the LoadModule line
and activate it (-a).  Typically, you install with -a; I was suggesting a
change to -A.
