No idea what you're talking about.

Maybe "gallery 2" (whatever that is) has a support forum of some kind?

"the binary install"?
And what's the role of PHP in all this?  It introduces a lot of issues, but
nothing you've said helps determine whether they might be relevant.

That suggests to me a machine that was broken before you tried to install.

Not suitable for server apps - but unlikely to be relevant if the
problem has anything at all to do with apache.
