=can't find it where? It's on the page number that I quoted for W&T's book
(unless there's a new edition out?). If it's not in the conf file then it
must be added - review p799 and around - they have a section about setting
up Apache in one place, and then later when talking about setting up PHP
they come back to making additions to Apache's conf file - some possibility
for confusion there if you think 'been there, done that'...

If you mean the DLLs being copied to

=there are many tutorials around. On the PHP site there is a page of links.
Pick one, eg PHPBuilder, and then scout around for what you want.
Alternatively, there's been plenty of discussion here on the lists (probably
more on PHP-General and PHP-Win, cf this one PHP-DB = really for
database-related topics) so a charge through the archives will unearth

=totally unnecessary to reformat.

=have you tested 'pure Apache' by placing an HTML file in the/an appropriate
folder and asking for it to be served through Apache (cf through the file
system) - and did that work?

=from this/the wrong end of the telescope, it sounds more like a conf issue
for PHP than anything else (calling for refinement not brute force!)

> I am running Apache 1.3.24 for Win32

=a good vintage, if not the latest nouveau.

=if you follow W&T's instructions and it still fails, come back with the
relevant snippets from the conf file and we'll work from there.
