Hello??? Is anybody there with an answer or headsup or acknowledgement of my post? The php4apache2.dll is where it belongs, I checked the file and it is in d:/php/sapi. Since I also installed php I completed all instructions given in the "Install PHP" in Appendix I. Any guesses?

where exactly does the index.html (from page 16) go? do i create a folder in the apache2 folder called "test" or what ? I'm hoping my problem is that minor.

Thanks in advanced to anyone who helps!

pipdickenz...as for your last post...yes, create the test folder under Apache2 and then put the index.html in there.
as for your other question...and I am quite sure that I will get laughs from others out there more experienced than I but...after farting around with Apache and doing and re-doing installs etc...a friend of mine asked if I had recetly defragged my hard drive. No, I hadn't, and even though the analysis said it wasn't necessary, I did it. Immediately after the defrag was completed, I restarted the machine and Apache worked like a charm.
Hope this helps.

On Apache can configure the folder where the websites are going to reside. By default is the folder htdocs. You can create as many folder as you want inside that folder. But if you create a test folder outside that folder and you haven;t changed the default folder on the Apache setting it will not work.

pipdickenz, when you go to localhost do you at least get Apache's "success page"?

I am using windows xp (home edition) and local host does give me the success page. Thank you all for trying to help,but after defragging, downloading 3 different versions of apache, refreshing quiet often and giving it a day I have finally got the "if this works we did it page". I glad I did but I have no idea how or why it worked! I know other people are having the same problem and defragging is sound advice.

Did you happen to reboot by any chance?
