I have PHP being loaded as an Apache module.  I am using Apache 1.3.19.  I am using the standard Win32 binary release for both PHP and Apache.

Here is the line from my httpd.conf file:

LoadModule php4_module c:/php/sapi/php4apache.dll

I get this error message when trying to start apache:
Syntax error on line 182 of c:/program files/apache group/apache/httpd.conf:
Cannot load c:/php/sapi/php4apache.dll into server: (127) The specified procedure could not be found:

Note the errors or messages above, and press the (ESC) key to exit.

If I replace the 4.0.5 dll with version 4.0.4pl1, it works just fine.

I tried again, and here are the steps that I took:

1) I uninstalled and removed all files for both PHP and Apache.  

2) I unzipped PHP 4.0.5, copied the "php.ini-dist" to "php.ini" in my WinNT folder, Rebooted, Installed Apache 1.3.19, added this line to my httpd.conf file "LoadModule php4_module c:/php/sapi/php4apache.dll" (as well as other configurations).

3) When starting Apache, I get the exact same error as before.

4) I replaced the 4.0.5 version of the php4apache.dll with the 4.0.4pl1 version, and Apache started without a hitch.

I have solved the problem.  I didn't copy the new php4ts.dll to my sys directory.

Another problem however is that the Zend optimizer doesn't work.  I have version 1.1.0 and it gives me a pile of errors.  I commented the zend lines out of my php.ini, and the php apache module loads fine now.

you don't need to have php4ts.dll in windows/system/, just leave it in the directory where apache.exe is.

Zend Optimizer is a third party product, report the errors to Zend.

I have isolated the cause of the problem(at least my problem).
In my case, I commented out the following line in php.ini
Then the Apache crash does not happpen.
Hope this helps

Thanks... i just re-installed apache/php on WinXP and got the error described. Thanks to this post I discovered that an old copy of php4ts.dll was in my C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32

Once i replaced with the new version of php4ts.dll all works fine.
