LoadModule php5_module "C:/php/php5apache2.dll"
PHPIniDir "C:/php"

I have installed php manually. I have Extracted it in c:/php directory.
I have also tried to set path variable for dll files and rename php.ini-dist to php.ini


Please Help me I am a newbie in php.

hi shaikh,

did you use an msi installer for php on windows? when I installed php from an msi installer I had tons of problems getting it to work. I downloaded the php5.2.3 zip and the pecl5.2.3 zip files and extracted them to the root of C. You can extract the pecl5.2.3 directory to C:\php.

after I did that, I configured my php.ini file to point to my web root directory and also modified the extension_dir directive to point to C:\php\ext

Then restarted apache and created a phpinfo.php file to test the install.

let me know if these steps help!

I have worked in jsp and java but php is new for me can u tell me what is the difference between php5.2.3 zip and the pecl5.2.3 zip. I would have to extract them both for using php on apahce 2 server. Thankx for reply. I will try that.

It would be a lot easier to just download Wampserver or XAMPP. Both will install Apache, MySQL, and PHP already configured.

I already have download Xampp server and it is running very good. But i Just want to know what was the mistake in my configuration so i was not able to use php module on apache2.

Thankx for your kind reply

pecl as far as I can tell just contain some extra modules that you can load into your php applications. the documentation that I used, recommended installing it with php 5.2.3. I'll see if i can find the link and post it here.

It is generally best not to tack new questions onto the end of solved posts, rather start a new thread for your question.

Your best bet for those configuration issues is to install an AMP package such as XAMPP or WAMPserver if you are working in Windows. Find a LAMP package if you are using Linux.

Dear php user i have tried my best and wasted lot of time to configure apache for php and i have described all my efforts on this thread's starting. I extremely sorry that i was not able to configure apache for php manually so i simply downloaded the xampp server which includes apache configured for php and it also contains extra modules such as phpmyadmin and filezilla server and some demos with php so i preffer u to do the same and it is very good for the beginners to use xampp so just go to the apachefriends website and download xampp utility. U will love it.

Sorry again for your problem.

Try to use apache 2.0 with PHP 5.x.x. For me it works well. For further information,

1,Click this http://www.expertsrt.com
2, Click the tutorial button in the site.
3, You will find a perfect way of installing your Apache, PHP, MYSQL...

I hope it helps,

If you insist to use apache 2.2 , try to check whether the php5apache2.dll in C:/php/, if not adjust the path.

Best Reards,

Berhe.

For PHP 5.2.x you must type LoadModule php5_module "C:/php/php5apache2_2.dll" not LoadModule php5_module "C:/php/php5apache2.dll" it's a small diference but it's important!

Hi Shaikh,

probably by now you have already started working with XAMPP. however, i thought this piece of info should help as i figured out you haven't been able to configure it manually...

you used the load module as
LoadModule php5_module "C:/php/php5apache2.dll"

what you should have done is to use this:

LoadModule php5_module "C:/php/php5apache2_2.dll"

as the "php5apache2.dll" is for php4 and "php5apache2_2.dll" is for php5 which you are using.

further one more line also helps:

"LoadFile C:\php\php5ts.dll" as it helps avoid dll hell.

Hope this helped...

Thanks,
Abinash
