Apache 2.2.17 + PHP 5.3.3

Hi all,

After a succesful instalation of Apache 2.2.17 I have found that I  cannot start the service due to this error:

httpd.exe: Syntax error on line 487 of C:/Apache2/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load C:/php/php5apache2_2.dll into server: The Apache service named is not a  valid application.

The PHP version is  5.3.3 Win32 VC9 (I'm using Windows Vista)

In the httpd.conf there is:
 LoadModule php5_module "C:/php/php5apache2_2.dll"  
 AddType application/x-httpd-php .php  
 PHPIniDir "C:/php"  

and yes, there's a php5apache2_2.dll in the php folder under C:
(I've copied the path and pasted it)

I've tried naming it:
php5apache2.dll and php5apache2.2.dll and php5apache.dll  without positive results.

I've tried also the VC6 version with the php5apache.dll, but I get the same error.

What else should I try?

Thanks a lot

If you need a bundled installation of apache2/php/mysql you may try xampp: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html

This is a full featured web development package which is quite easy to install and runs on windows/mac/linux.

You might need to copy php5ts.dll in /PHP folder to folder /bin of Apache

Thanks for answering guys.

dsmile: didn't work, no changes :(

max-hb: I've installed it but I cannot run Apache. The error shown is "system cannot find the path specified" .. how can I fix that? I believe it was the xampp giving the system the path. All folders are under xampp folder .. should I change anything?

Thanks again

the path referecied must be the same where you install php
My Example:
#BEGIN PHP INSTALLER EDITS - REMOVE ONLY ON UNINSTALL
PHPIniDir "C:/Program Files/PHP/"
LoadModule php5_module "C:/Program Files/PHP/php5apache2_2.dll"
#END PHP INSTALLER EDITS - REMOVE ONLY ON UNINSTALL


TRY to restart you pc...


if not corrected... paste your php confiig file content and see php logo...
