apache won't start after adjusting http.conf

When I configure httpd.conf in apache to include "LoadModule php5_module C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/php5apache.dll" in the file, a syntax error on this line is preventing apache to start up.  The syntax error is as follows; LoadModule takes two arguments, a module name and the name of a shared object file to load it from.  Any ideas? I, personally thought that my syntax was correct.  I'm trying to configure apache for my recent installation of php5 and I'm running apache on windows XP.

since there is a space between the words "Progam" and "Files", it is seen as three separate arguments. Try putting quotes around the path:
LoadModule php5_module "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/php5apache.dll"

Thank you.  I went ahead and did that and I'm no longer getting that error... but, now I'm getting an error that says it can't load that particular path; the error is "the specified module could not be found".  Any suggestions? I double checked to make sure that php5apache.dll is indeed in that directory.

Fixed it! Forgot a bunch of pound signs before statements... will award hielo the points.  Thanks!

Thanks, your solution fixed the problem, I had bunch of errors after that, but they were related to not having placed # before statements

That grade is completely uncalled for! Without the quotes your issue would not have been fixed even if YOU had not missed those pound signs, which by the way, there is no way I could have guessed given that you practically posted no code.
