I am assuming you are talking about OpenBSD 3.6 and not 4.6 (that's
several releases away:-)). The apache in OpenBSD is chrooted by
default and requires to run it as [httpd="-u"] for non-chrooted mode
in /etc/rc.conf or /etc/rc.conf.local. More information at

Also the best was is to use BSD ports (/usr/ports/www/php4) to install
php and then add the packages from /usr/ports/distfiles/**


pkg_add -v http://openbsd.mirrors.pair.com/3.6/packages/i386/"package-name.tgz"

will download and install all the dependencies as well. Enjoy!
