there are a couple of issues with Suse91 php packages which might also catch you out
One is documented at
also one or more of the rpms is broken, possibly the recode extension, which causes Yast install/uninstall to not complete properly leaving installed extensions and apache config files disagreeing with each other. This is what I did to get PHP running...
0. Stop apache service
1. Use Yast to remove *all* apache and PHP packages
2. make sure /usr/lib/php/extensions is empty or non-existent
2a. if its not, then uninstall leftover extensions with "rpm -e --noscripts"
3. Use yast to install as small a set of PHP extensions you can get away with - and build up carefully
4. restart apache2
