Er, then that's a problem since you said you did *not* try php5-common
5.2.5-1, and libapache2-mod-php5 depends on php5-common of the same version.
You seem to be doing something quite unsupported with the packages.
And this would explain why php5 was not enabled in apache2, because
libapache2-mod-php5 cannot be in an installed state if there's a version
mismatch between libapache2-mod-php5 and php5-common; and before it's in
state "installed", the module is not enabled for apache2's use (this is done
in the libapache2-mod-php5 postinst).

I think these two bug reports should be merged. There is at most one bug
here - and more likely zero bugs.

You should probably stick to using apt-get/aptitude for installing the
packages, since that will check things like the versioned package
dependencies ahead of time and guard against things like accidentally
deconfiguring libapache2-mod-php5 when installing php5-common, which is what
it looks like happened here.
