I am attempting to use phpBB to create a forum. After trying, I'd find apache would not only refuse to parse php despite what i can tell is a correct setup, but after accessing a page from any computer using any browser on any OS, apache will serve that page, then hang to the point a full system reboot is required to restart the service, as restarting the service itself does not work. The error log doesn't change either, so I'm at a loss what to do.

Greetings to Australia Smile,

it is really hard to help as there are not many information about your environment (OS, used Apache-version, installed PHP-version) or the steps you have done to check the correctness of your config.
On my Windows I would navigate to Apache's install-directory and run
bin\httpd.exe -t

or maybe specify the config-file to use with
bin\httpd.exe -t -f conf\httpd.conf

The output in my case is
Syntax OK

What happens if you try to start Apache directly on the commandline? Is there any helpful output?
