    error can't load

    I am studing Kevin's book. I have installed apache, mysql, and php. I'm running winME.

    When I run this:
    C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\bin>apache

    I get this:
    Syntax error on line 974 of C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/conf/httpd.conf:
    Cannot load C:/PHP/sapi/php4apache.dll into server: one of the library files needed to run this application cannot be found.

    Yet when I go to this folder the php4apache.dll is in this path.

    Please help if you can.
    Thanks

    hmmm, no idea. The dll file may be corrupt. Have you tried replacing it with a fresh copy from the files you downloaded?

    BTW, for a very quick way to get a development environment up and running you can download phpdev from www.firepages.com.au It will mean you miss the steps of setting up and configuring mysql, php and apache - but it will have you up and running quicker.

    Hi,
    I noticed that kind of error happens when you do not copy php4ts.dll in the right directory too.
    Under WinME should be,
    windows/system
    but I never used WinME, though.

    If I were you I would play with Apache 1.3 and not with Apache 2.0.
    Obviously when we need to install a software we always choose the latest version, but I think that Apache is an exception.
    So for your studing I'd play with Apache 1.3.

    If you want to use Apache2, the php4apache2.dll must be used instead of php4apache.dll.

    thanks pippo. I switched to Apache 1.3 and got rid of that error.
