the logs are really under /var/log/httpd
but a sym link exists as /etc/httpd/logs

thats because the base path for all of the apache config is /etc/httpd,
therefore the symlink allows nice easy relative paths to be used for the
log file config lines.

i dont know about the suse config, but the fedora/redhat/centos config
files for apache come with php configuration already in place, the
config rules are conditional on the php module (and thus package) being
installed. so turning on php support just involves installing it (yum
install php) and restarting apache. (service httpd restart)
