I am beginning to regret the upgrade decision

I have now successfully added the loadmodule using the php5apache2_2.dll, but my apache crashes as soon as I run any php scripts, I tried starting httpd.exe manually to see if i see any errors and I get a string of errors saying things like isqlt09a.dll not found, OCI.dll not found etc etc

does anyone have a proper step by step to the upgrade? it seems everything is a mess with the new releases of PHP and Apache

thanks

Firstly make sure there is no files php.* in the c:\windows\system32 folder. There no longer needed.

Install Apache and download the zip version. Rename the old php folder to PHP2 or something Extract PHP 5.2.0 into the PHP folder.

Rename php.dist.ini to php.ini and edit the cfile for the correct folders.

In the Apache2.2 conf folder add

      LoadModule php5_module "d:/PHP5/php5apache2_2.dll"
      AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
      PHPIniDir "C:/<path to php"

tbh if your going from a major Apache change like you are its normally easier to completely obliterate any trace of PHP and Apache and start from scratch rewriting all the new conf and php,.ini files etc rather than doing the tempting thing of "Just using the old ones". Let us know how you get on.
