I just installed Aoache and PHP 4.3 on windows 2k.

The apache server works fine and I changed the config file to incl;ude the lines

LoadModule php4_module c:\PHP\php4apache2.dll

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml .html
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

Note that the loadmodule path is correct, when its not correct I can't get apache to start, when it is correct it starts without error.

When I try to load a .php page in my brownser I get the standard windows dialog box that lets you choose the application to be used to edit the .php file.

Wild guess : did you move php4ts.dll to the system32 directory as suggested on http://www.php.net/manual/en/install.apache2.php ?

Btw, it's preferable to use forward slashes '/' in pathnames in apache config files.

LoadModule php4_module c:/PHP/php4apache2.dll

That didn't help--at least I don't think it did.  I hadn't copied the php4ts.dll because the instructions I was following didn't say to.  But when I did I still had the problem.   It ended up the problem was that I was specifying the wrong path in the browser, I was specifying the regular "DOS" path to the .php file.  When I specified it though the localhost URL it worked.  

Thanks anyways.
