Was told to install Apache, PHP, and mySQL on my computer for school. First I went to each of the websites and downloaded current versions of each. My SQL installed ok. Apache installed okay, except when I put http://localhost into my IE browser, I got a page that said "It works!" Not the page I was told it would be. Anyway, now came the install of php. I downloaded the current version, it installed and when I was told to add
Loadmodule...I kept getting Syntax Error #127 C:\Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/conf/HTTPD.CONF: Cannot load C:/php/php5apache2.dll into server: The specified module cannot be found.
Okay, I checked. that is exactly where that file is located. When I try to restart Apache, I get that error code. If I take out the LoadModule php5_module C:/php/php5apache2.dll
It also tells me to look for php.ini and add PHPIniDir "C:/ php/".
I ran a search on my computer, there is no php.ini file. There is a php.ini-dist file, and a php.ini-recommended file. Where do I add the PHPIniDir?
I know to most of you this is simple stuff, but it's been frustrating the CRAP out of me!
What am I doing wrong, how do I fix this so I can get my work done?
I need to test the installation with <?php phpinfo (); ?> I enter this on notepad, save in the Apache2/htdocs file, then open my browser, type in http://localhost/phpinfo.php and I SHOULD get the info.

Thanks to all for the links to more help. But after pages and pages, and changes all over, I'm really messed up. But the biggest problem I seem to be having, no matter where I list the LoadModule for php...it tells me that it cannot locate the module. The php5_module is not in my php file, nor in the Apache file. The file it's directed to (phpapache2.dll is there, but not the phpapache2_2.dll listed in a help file. What is it? I think this is the only error that I'm getting other than it can't find the PHPIniDir either!
