Apache says php5apache2_4.dll is not a valid Win32 application:

Code:
D:\Development\Apache\bin>httpd -k start -n Apache_SlashDev
httpd: Syntax error on line 3 of D:/Development/Apache/conf/VHosts/slashdev.conf
: Cannot load D:/Development/PHP/php5apache2_4.dll into server: %1 is not a vali
d Win32 application.


I'm running the 32bit Apache 2.4.2 build with 32bit VC9 Non-thread safe PHP 5.4.1 on a 64bit Windows 7. This error also occured on PHP 5.4.0.

Anyone have any clue as of why it is not working?

This setup does work on my Windows 2003, 32bit production server.

You have to use the thread safe PHP.

This error happens when you mix Win64 and Win32 modules. For example when you try to load a Win32 module in a Win64 Apache.

Be sure you have:

Win32 Apache 2.4.2 with the current php5apache2_4.dll from here.

I feel stupid. I was absolutely sure I had the 32 bit Apache installed, but I had not.

I have the 32bit Apache installed now, but cannot test if this fixes it yet (though it should). Trying to start Apache service returns blank, without actually starting.

I found the problem:

Apache did not have write access to the apache/logs/access.log file. All is good now Smile PHP loads up too. It is strange that no feedback is given on this error.

Thank you for your help.
