I installed apache in windows 2003 server.,
I tested it .
it was runing fine.
than i extracted php in c drive and in hpptd.cong
i added the following line
LoadModule php5_module "c:\php\php5apache2.dll"
AddType application/x-hyypd-php .php .htm

and now when i restart the apache it says

windows couldn not start the apache2.2 on local computer.

when i saw the event property it says
httpd.exe: syntax error on line 487 of
c:/program file(x86)/apache software foundation/apache2.2/conf/httpd.conf cannot load
c:/php/php5apache2.dll into server the specified module could not be formed.

    I guess it's the Backslashes you used in httpd.conf. Use Frontslashes instead !!
    LoadModule php5_module "c:/php/php5apache2.dll"

    If this is not the solution, read on :)
    PHP on Windows has some things you have to do manually.
    Please read the instructions at carefully, it is important to copy the DLLs to the right places.
    Did you copy or make available php5ts.dll as advised ?
