Hi Troy, 
Thanks for the ideas.  You got me going again.  I
better explain as I might be on the wrong track again.

The httpd error_log did not have any pertinent
messages.  In fact, it did not record my attemps after
reading your message.  So,...there was nothing wrong
wrt apache.

Retrying the php files, I was surprised to see
date.php work and then not work.  I'm embarrassed to
explain that it worked when I keyed the address into
the browsers location window:
but not when I navigated to the file.  In that case,
the loc bar showed:

I was acting like I would with html files, sometimes
using the loc bar; sometimes using file, open,
navigate; sometimes using bookmarks.  I should have
picked up the differences much earlier.  More humility

Re permissions, I'll try 644.  Been using 755.

Again, thanks for getting me to look at it from a
different angle.
