Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I got a new laptop with Windows 7 and want to set up a php+mysql develop environment.
Thus, I downloaded httpd_2.4.3-netware-bin and install Apache 2.4 successfully.
Then I got php-5.4.10-nts-Win32-VC9-x86.zip and unpack it . But I can't find php5apache2_4.dll in it. (I need put it in httpd.conf , Am I right?)
So I went to Google for it, but I got nothing.
Where can I get it?

I don't know which package you have downloaded but the working package can be found at windows.php.net/download/. You have to download the vc6 version, non-thread-safe.

P.S if you don't find the php5apache2_4.dll you downloaded the wrong package, I repeat you need the vc6 non thread safe version.

P.P.S: If you want to simplify all the process I suggest you to use WAMP, this do all the tricks, installing a working apache php server without requires tons of googling. www.wampserver.com/en/

Thank you very much , I'll go to try the php5.dll instead . If it do not work, I'll try the WAMP. –  CuGBabyBeaR Dec 23 '12 at 16:00
No dude sorry, I edit the answer, you need the php5apache2_4.dll ( orphp5apache2_2.dll according to your apache version), if you don't find it you have the wrong package. vc6 version, non-thread-safe the file is named php-5.2.17-nts-Win32-VC6-x86.zip –  0wn3r Dec 23 '12 at 16:06
Oh. I tried php5.dll and it is does not work. And I just finish the downloading of WAMP . Then I saw you before I do any uninstall and install. You said that I need a vc6 version package , is that means I can not use PHP 5.3 or later? –  CuGBabyBeaR Dec 23 '12 at 16:35
Exactly, If you want to use php5.3 or later you can't use apache on your environment. Quote from php site: If PHP is used with IIS then choose PHP 5.3 VC9 Non Thread Safe or PHP 5.2 VC6 Non Thread Safe; If PHP is used with IIS7 or greater and PHP 5.3+, then the VC9 binaries of PHP should be used. If PHP is used with Apache 1 or Apache 2 then choose PHP 5.3 VC6 or PHP 5.2 VC6. –  0wn3r Dec 23 '12 at 16:40
To complete the answer I suggest you to follow the php5 official guide to install it: php.net/manual/en/install.windows.manual.php –  0wn3r Dec 23 '12 at 16:43
