Php version issue

I updated my php version from 5.21 to 5.2.9-2 and uninstalled php 5.2.1(working with windows xp).
Now apache monitor shows that php version is 5.2.9-2 but phpinfo shows version 5.2.1

Forgive me but…why 5.2.9? 5.2.17 is the latest in the 5.2 branch which is currently UNSUPPORTED and no longer gets any form of security updates. You should be on 5.3.6…You are really far behind the times…

Did you reboot Apache afterwards?
