Enable PHP in Apache userdir in Lucid Lynx (Ubuntu 10.04)

If you’re using php + apache in Lucid Lynx (Ubuntu 10.04), you’ll notice that the php is disabled when you’re using userdir module (http://localhost/~yourusername). To enable it, open /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php5.conf (alt+F2, then type gksudo gedit /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php5.conf) and comment this part (add ‘#’ character in every line):

        php_admin_value engine Off

The result should be like this:

#        php_admin_value engine Off

Save the file, then restart the apache by typing sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart in terminal.

    So I am not sure why my PHP stopped working after an upgrade. However I did notice, that commenting the above line seem to help PHP being processed by apache and the site seems to be working. However I am trying to understand why the above is required, because I have another server where the above is not commented out and PHP is still working ok.
