I have installed apache, httpd-2.2.19-win32-x86-openssl-0.9.8r.msi, localhost displaying "It works!" so i think it works
I have installed PHP, php-5.2.17-Win32-VC6-x86.msi, everything seems ok.
Then i tried to add (LoadModule php5_module "c:/php/php5apache2_2.dll") to the httpd.conf. stopped apache and when i tried to restart it, "The requested operation has failed"! remove the added line and i can start apache again.
Tried apache 2.0 but same thing, i don't know what is wrong as i can see php5apach2_2.dll in the php folder. The c:\php is in the PATH environment.
FYI-I've installed the 'not thread-safe' version of the php but uninstalled it and then installed the 'thread-safe' one so i thought that would solve the problem but it didn't. Please helppppppppppppppppppppppp!
