I am having trouble installing php from the site php.net.  I downloaded php5isapi.dll from an external source, and I keep getting the error 400 or 500. I have downloaded 2 versions of php5isapi.dll with the same result. I think it is the file cause when I replace it with php.exe or phpchi.exe, at least it shows me that php cannot be loaded cause problems with html (at least I don't see error 400 or 500  :)
What can I do

Put php5isapi.dll in your windows or system32 folder among other PHP and apache dlls or if you know how to add them in PATH in system environment, add their folder into PATH. Then give it a try. But why you don't use simple and easy PHP installer here:

I suggest you to delete what you did and use link I gave you above

Thanx for the exact and correct link. I tried some before, but were ambiguos or not direct. This one worked like a charm.
