Did you adjust $wgScriptPath in LocalSetttings?  Remember that httpd  
document root is now the virtual host url.  If not that, I suspect  
some other path problem.  What do you mean by "not working" (On my  
server, the symptoms of $wgScriptPath problems are no skins and links  
going off into space, but not total php crash).  Have you checked the  
error logs?
