apache + php on windows = ghei

Sign in to follow this  


trying to install apache 2 and php 4/5 on windows is a right chore. Half the stuff doesn't even seem to be thrown in by the installer. Or I just suck at teh interwebs.

Have you tried Appserve?
It installs Apache, php, mysql and phpMyAdmin (and I think CGI as well, or is CGI part of Apache?) for you.

Apache 2.1.x and 2.2.x for windows, wont work with PHP 5

-Install apache 2.0.x into the default directory
-Install PHP5 into C:\PHP-5.1.4 (select Apache for webserver)
-go to
C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\conf (your apache conf directory)

-open http.conf
-Find lines that begin with the word "LoadModule"
-insert new line before the first one you find...

LoadModule php5_module "C:\PHP-5.1.4\php5apache2.dll"

-Find last line that begins with the word "AddCharset"
-insert 2 new lines after that...

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .html
PHPIniDir "C:/PHP-5.1.4/"

-save & close http.conf

-Right click the apache service and restart it or restart apache however you can.
