grep -rin LoadModule.*cgi /etc/apache*

Also, try running any other CGI script.

That's more like it!  OK, should be no problem with Event.

Koha doesn't use php, so php5 should be fine as long as phpmysqladmin
is OK with it.

mysql4/5 is more and more of a problem.  I still have one mysql3
server around and I know others do, which makes mysql version support
a fun juggling act.

Sounds like a NameVirtualHost problem.  Try reading through the Apache
manual about it to see whether you've set it up right.

That probably won't work without lots of other changes.  The
koha-httpd.conf (which I think you should link or copy into
/etc/apache*/sites-available and then run a2ensite koha or aensite
koha) sets up the appropriate Aliases.

Hope that helps,
