    Go for it! You can't blow anything up or kill anyone my friend, and if it goes ugly you can always say 'sod it' and go for wamp or xamp :-)

    Okay, before I complete the installation. I've chosen the path C:\server\php to install the php and told it I wanted it to configure Apache and now it wants me to point to the directory containing the Apache configuration. I chose C:\server\apache\conf is that correct? or do I just point it to C:\server\apache?

    My guess (and that is all it is) is to point it to the folder where the httpd.conf file is located.

    Okay, here goes nothing. If I'm not back in 10 minutes it's because I've thrown my laptop across the room.

    Does it also serve up PHP OK?

    Is there a way I can test that to find out?

    Sure, create a test php page in your webroot directory with the following contents:

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    phpinfo
    ();
    ?>
    save it as phpinfo.php and then browse to http://localhost/phpinfo.php

    Yes, it brought up the php version, system, build date, compiler, architecture and so on. Is that what you wanted to know?

    Take care and enjoy Apache :-)

    Hey, I give credit where credit is due and you are the one that figured it out. Thank you again for the help. You were awesome.

    I can't take credit for what you did, or Fou-lu figured out. Seriously, well done. You worked out you had the wrong PHP when Fou-lu picked it up as 'source'.

    Great job all round.

    Glad that you had a happy outcome and never had to throw your laptop at the wall ;-)

    Okay, so the apache.org binaries should be ignored since they are compiled in VC6. But the new versions of PHP are only coming in VC9 from the looks of it.
    You can download a new version of Apache from this page: http://www.apachelounge.com/download/
    Use the Apache 2.2.22 version, not the 2.4.

    The PHP version you'll want is this one: http://windows.php.net/downloads/rel...32-VC9-x86.zip for 5.4, or this one for 5.3.10: http://windows.php.net/downloads/rel...32-VC9-x86.zip

    Sorry I know that the thread has progressed a bit as well so you are further, but I got caught into fixing some stuff at work.
    I'd check your apache build as well; VC9 versions should be used with the VC9 compiled apache 2.2.22, not the VC6 at apache.org.

    Thank you and I'm glad I didn't have to throw it either. Now that I know what's wrong I can fix the problem on my desktop computer, too. I'm all smiles now. Thanks again, leslie.jones
