[nycphp-talk] Apache 2.2.3 and PHP 5.1.6 Install Failures on Windows XP

As it turns out, the latest combination of PHP and Apache that works is: 

Apache 2.2.3 and PHP 5.2

If one wants to use any Apache version higher than Apache 2.0.x 
(like I was using Apache 2.2.3) then one must download the most recent 
snapshot of PHP, that is PHP 5.2 available at this sanpshots 
downloads page:

I've done the above, updated my Apache .conf to point to the newer, 
correct PHP 5.2 .dll called: php5apache2_2.dll

Already up and running. Thank you all.

  You checked whether the php5apache2.dll file exists in C:\PHP, right?
This seems to be the most likely cause of your problem.
