For php, you should have in /usr/local/etc/apache22/httpd.conf such lines:
(put this line around other modules loads;)
LoadModule php5_module        libexec/apache22/libphp5.so

and, most important:
in some section (I currently see that my case it is mime_module)
<IfModule mime_module>

(You must insert this)
     AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
     AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps


after that
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache22 configtest
and if all OK
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache22 restart

BTW, this is barely relative to PC-BSD mailing list ;)
