What would help is the output from your httpd error log when you access
date.php.  httpd.conf should tell you where the error log is located.
Try: tail -f /path/to/error.log

I'd be very surprised if there was not some difference between your php
files that do work and those that don't.  In particular since you may
have been experimenting with short tags etc., i'd look into that.
Permissions probably aren't the issue, -rw-r--r-- should be fine.  Note
that the execute bit for php files shouldn't generally be set since your
web server may try to 'execute' the file as a CGI which it is not.
