This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You might wish to try XAMPP or WAMP, which will install everything for you. There are tons of hits on Google for 'c:/php/php5apache2.dll', by the way. – JAL Nov 2 '10 at 1:44
@Frankie exactly this firs google article tells me about this "c:/php/php5apache2.dll" but I don't have it in the php installation folder – serhio Nov 2 '10 at 1:44
The first hit on Google suggest that you might wish to look for php5apache2_5.dll instead. – JAL Nov 2 '10 at 1:45
@Alex: don't have php5apache2_5.dll neither. I don't need MySQL and Perl, just Apache+php – serhio Nov 2 '10 at 1:53
Sure, but even if it installed MySQL and Perl, but configured PHP and Apache correctly, you could ignore those and use what you need... unless you're short on disk space, I guess! – JAL Nov 2 '10 at 1:55

You probably downloaded VC9 instead of VC6 on

You can read in the download instructions:

"If you are using PHP with Apache 1 or Apache2 from you need to use the VC6 versions of PHP. [...] Do NOT use VC9 version with binaries."

yes... I dowloaded VC9, because is was the first one – serhio Nov 2 '10 at 2:07
So, I downloaded the V6... I have the same c:\php content... any *apache*.dll – serhio Nov 2 '10 at 2:15
That's odd, because I downloaded it myself (both TS and NTS) and both have php5apache.dll. TS also has php5apache2.dll and php5apache2_2.dll. – netcoder Nov 2 '10 at 3:36
@netcoder do you have that dlls installed in what folder? – serhio Nov 2 '10 at 10:35

what I would recommend it to download something called wamp, an acronym for Windows Apache MySql PHP. It is great, I use it all the time and It is free.
