I actually installed PHP 7 so the file /etc/httpd/modules in php.conf should be:

libphp5.so

 

Apache still won't start:

Solution

Look carefully at the whole "Load" line to make sure it makes sense.

LoadModule php5_module modules/libphp7.so

Although I updated the line to say libphp7.so I didn't notice the "Load Module php5_module" so you have to update it the final solution is this:

 

LoadModule php7_module modules/libphp7.so
