[horde] Premature end of script headers: test.php

Hi all,

I am new to both PHP and Horde.  Having read the FAQ, install instructions and 
trawled through recent news posts, I find myself looking for some help in 
getting the test.php script functioning.

I have installed php 4.3.1 and Horde 2.2.1 from tar balls.  I am already 
successfully running Apache 2.0.44 and a mail system unrelated to this 
problem.  All compilation options for php mentioned in the horde & imp tar 
balls have been successfully compiled & php successfully installed.

When using horde's test.php through the browser I get an error from the Apache 
server indicating an Internal Server Error (error code 500, from the logs).  
In particular the error log indicates "Premature end of script headers: 

When running php test.php from the horde directory I get a full HTML document, 
but not HTTP headers - would a command-line run get these headers?

I realise that this error is tending to point to the Apache configuration for 
errors, but the only two modifications I have found mentioned are used in my 
Apache's configuration:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
DirectoryIndex index.php

These were both placed beneath other AddType declarations in the httpd.conf.

Could someone point me in the correct direction of resolving this issue 

Best regards,

Peter Mee
