I am missing the php5apache2_2.dll when I try reinstalling PHP 5.3.5 again, its still not there. Is there something wrong with my install? When I install PHP 5.3.3, I dont get this problem – Jiew Meng Jan 13 '11 at 12:26

The only diff was I used the VC9 msi version, shouldn't that (VC9) be better? UPDATE: Oh VC9 is not for Apache? icic – Jiew Meng Jan 15 '11 at 1:34
I just tried installing VC6 msi version, its still missing the option to integrate with Apache? must I really install manually? I used the non-thread-safe version is it right? – Jiew Meng Jan 15 '11 at 1:43
nvm I solved the problem using VC6 Thread Safe PHP. Just curious then, whats VC6 Non-Thread Safe for? – Jiew Meng Jan 15 '11 at 1:46

if you want to see Apache into the de radio bottons options, you need to install the Thread Safe One!
