php5apache2_2.dll not installed in 1.7.2?

Postby dedicated » 16. November 2009 01:26

I recently installed 1.7.2 and got the dreaded missing php5apache2_2.dll error when trying to start Apache. I noticed that all the php dll were no longer in the C:\xampp\apache\bin directory. I couldn't figure out what to do, even after searching the forum. So I went back to install 1.7.1 and everything was fine. Is this a known issue?

Thanks.

\xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-xampp.conf file loads this module located now in the \xampp\apache\module\ folder.
Code: Select all
#
# PHP-Module setup
#
LoadFile "C:/xampp/php/php5ts.dll"
LoadModule php5_module modules/php5apache2_2.dll


So if the dll is not where it should be then there maybe issues with your XAMPP 1.7.2 installation.

The 1.7.2 exe installation file you downloaded is an WinRAR archive file so if you right click on it, select to open the archive in either WinRAR or the freeware 7zip and locate the dll file, then you can extract it to the modules folder if it is missing as a sort of hack fix.
