I'm trying to compile PHP 5.4 with Apache 2.4 handler since it's not officially available (I know that supplies it unofficially, but I don't need it! I need to compile it myself ). I've included required Apache include/lib folders within PHP's deps folder, applied the submitted patch here: And I got a successful build.

But unfortunately it didn't work for me (Apache not started), I keep getting the following error(s) in event log:

>>> httpd.exe: Syntax error on line 175 of /path/to/httpd.conf: Module "sapi\\apache2handler\\mod_php5.c" is not compatible with this version     .

>>> of Apache (found 20110619, need 20120211). Please contact the vendor for the correct version.

httpd.conf line 175:

LoadModule php5_module ../../php/php-5.4.5/php5apache2_4.dll

What's wrong with it? Any suggestions??

Why do you have to do it yourself? – SomeKittens Aug 5 '12 at 4:13
What about learning how to do it myself?! Well I've others reasons as well!! – Omranic Aug 5 '12 at 4:22
Honestly, if you're learning how (and I'm guessing new to this), I wouldn't experiment with versions that aren't official available. Try something that's been field-tested where people have worked out the weird errors. – SomeKittens Aug 5 '12 at 4:23
Thanks for your advice. But as soon as did it, then it's possible & it's method should be well known/tested. I've asked them as well. I'll appreciate your help if you mentioned any suggestions. – Omranic Aug 5 '12 at 4:28
Well known/tested/(documented) !== possible – SomeKittens Aug 5 '12 at 4:29
