Make sure that you have the following lines in your Apache's virtual
host configuration for mythweb:

            setenv db_server        "localhost"
            setenv db_name          "mythconverg"
            setenv db_login         "mythtv"
            setenv db_password      "mythtv"

You have to make sure that the '.php' extension has a handler set up.
(i.e. AddType application/x-httpd-php .php)
