I have a question about setting up Apache 2.4 with PHP 5.4.8. I've been off and on trying to set this up for months now.
I haven't found an easy to use guide about which version of what to use (VC9, etc); I'm still using Apache 2.2 with PHP 5.3.5 on my development and production servers (VC6 versions); I would like to use the latest technology, so I'm working on setting it all up. But now I'm running into a problem.

I unzipped the "httpd-2.4.3-win32.zip" file from this site to C:\WebStuff\Apache 2.4\ rather than C:\Apache24. I downloaded "php-5.4.8-Win32-VC9-x86.zip" from windows.php.net and extracted it to C:\WebStuff\PHP 5.4.8. I also downloaded "php5apache2_4.dll-php-5.4-win32.zip" from this site and took the php5apache2_4.dll file and put it here: C:\WebStuff\php5apache2_4.dll

I have done a Google search but only found answers to this problem for Apache 2.2, which is not applicable to me.

I added to the httpd.conf file as instructed:
LoadModule php5_module "C:/WebStuff/php5apache2_4.dll"

And when I try to run httpd.exe from command line (to make sure it is working), I get this:


C:\WebStuff\Apache 2.4\bin>"C:\WebStuff\Apache 2.4\bin\httpd.exe"
httpd.exe: Syntax error on line 172 of C:/WebStuff/Apache 2.4/conf/httpd.conf: C
annot load C:/WebStuff/php5apache2_4.dll into server: The specified module could
 not be found.

C:\WebStuff\Apache 2.4\bin>

I'm really confused. Could someone help me out on this? If there's any more information I can provide that will help someone help me to solve this problem, let me know...

Running on Windows 7.

Quite some posts here with your issue.

You say that you extracted PHP to C:\WebStuff\PHP 5.4.8, but you put the php5apache2_4.dll file in C:\WebStuff\php5apache2_4.dll

php5apache2_4.dll needs to be in the php dir.
