just installed php 5.3.2 with apache 2.2. I am not able to restart apache because apache is not able to load the php5 module. The dll file php5apache2_2.dll exists, the path is correct in the conf file, still it doesn't load. My OS is windows XP 64 bit.

What am I doing wrong? :(

Can you possible post what is the error message being display when you try to run apache or the error that is spawned inside error_log in your log files from your apache(usually inside the log folder of apache) ?

never mind, I reinstalled PHP and it worked. Now I need to get oracle working. I didn't do anything different, just uninstalled PHP and reinstalled it. – user187809 Jun 17 '10 at 21:02
well even so i would still recommend you to take a look at the error_log if you fall into the same problem again and a simple reinstall does not work, that could lead you to what is going on, anyway glad you managed it out. – Prix Jun 17 '10 at 21:11
yes sure, will do. Fighting with Oracle now. I have the dll, I can connect to oracle from sql developer, but apache doesn't like oci8.dll – user187809 Jun 17 '10 at 21:13
ha, no DLLs are loading now. path is correct, I've added the extension to the ini file...what am I doing wrong? :( – user187809 Jun 17 '10 at 21:21
Your first question should be closed. For your Oracle problem open another question, if you want. – lg. Dec 10 '10 at 8:17
