I heard a rumour that there is a program named "PHP Tripod" that does the same thing as PHP, MySQL and Apache. Like "three in one".
The reason I am looking for this program is having troubles with Apache.

Do you know how can I get this program? I searched in google, found inadequate few results.

I've never heard of Tripod, but there is a Daniweb member who recently installed a package that puts Apache, MySQL, PHP, and other stuff in a single install. I can't seem to find that post or remember the product name, but it was not "Tripod".

I assume you are talking about installing on Windows since Apache, MySQL, and PHP are usually already ready to go on most Linux distributions.

My WAMP HOWTO will walk you through step-by-step how to install Apache, MySQL, PHP, and phpMyAdmin on a Windows computer. Disclaimer: My instructions simply help a newbie know what to download, how to install, how to configure basic functionality, and how to test everything. For secure production use, you'll need to learn more.


My platform is Apache 2.?, PHP 5, WinXP.

Apache gives an error message on this line :
LoadModule php5_module "C:/Prog/PHP/php5apache2.dll"
in the "httpd.conf" file.

Can any of you attach his "httpd.conf" configuration file into this thread? I don't believe it would differ from user to user.

Apache gives an error message on this line :
LoadModule php5_module "C:/Prog/PHP/php5apache2.dll"
in the "httpd.conf" file.

My first question is, is "C:\Prog\PHP\php5apache2.dll" really where your php5apache2.dll lives? Usually, it's in a subfolder named ext.

Once you get past this error, you may see errors when Apache starts saying certain modules could not be found. If so, in your php.ini file, find the line that specifies your extensions directory, and enter a Windows specific path. It comes default to "./". You'll want to change this to something like "c:\php\ext\". You'll see people who recommend you to put the modules in your Windows System32 folder---that is MESSY! You can do that, but I've found it also works to just add your php and php ext dir to your Windows Path.

If your installing apache, php, mysql, tomcat or any desired linux http web server software then I would recommend installing xampp for windows, mac and android. However on linux since the software is native to linux I would recommend installing from the yum or dpkg repository.
When installing xampp remember to keep its default path as forcing it into system locations such as Program Files, Program Files(x86), Windows and all sub-directories/folders will make it malfunction particularly on windows 7/8 due to a new security policy.
