I have windows XP with service pack 3 machine.
I installed Apache 2.2 and tested working fine.
And then I installed php 5.3.1.
When I start Apache, it doesn't start and not getting get following error.
"Apache HTTP Server has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."
But I don't get any error in the log fine.

After studing in detail, I found this enrty in httpd.conf
LoadModule php5_module "C:/php/php5apache2_2.dll"

But this file is already there in the folder.

In windows event log; I found this entry

Faulting application httpd.exe, version, faulting module php5ts.dll,
version, fault address 0x000e619a.

Please can someone help me with this problem.

many thank

Find a LogLevel directive and set it to debug.
Then check the error log.

Even then if you don't find anything then comment the LoadModule line and start apache if it works. If it does then you have to recompile php or try a cgi / fastcgi alternative.
