I'm new to the PHP world. I downloaded the Apache 2.2(httpd-2.2.20-win32-86-no_ssl.msi) on my laptop and after installation, tested with localhost and got the page that I wanted.
Next, downloaded PHP (php-5.3.8-src.zip).
Rename the php.ini-development to php.ini.
added c:\php and c:\php\ext to my path. Also added PHPIniDir as a variable with c:/php as value.
added the following lines to httpd.conf of the Apache
LoadModule php5_module "c:/php/php5apache2_2.dll"
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
Rebooted my laptop to make the changes to my path available.
when I try to start the Apache server, i get the following error.
can not load c:/php/php5apache2_2.dll into server: the specified module could not be found.
Is this php5apache2_2.dll file suppose to be available at the beginning after unzipping the php file because that file can not be found at all in the php directory. What I did is downloaded the file from the web and copied it into the php directory. Still getting the same error.
can someone help me with installing PHP on my machine.
