When I try to start apache, it says:

"Syntax error on line 979 of k:/apache/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
Cannot load k:/apache/apache/modules/mod_php4/sapi/php4apache.dll into server: (
1157)"

Added lines in apache.conf are:

-------CUT HERE------------
# for the apache module
LoadModule php4_module modules/mod_php4/sapi/php4apache.dll 
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php4

#for the cgi binary (you can use that one compiled with force cgi redirect too)
ScriptAlias /php4/ "k:/apache/apache/modules/mod_php4/"
Action application/x-httpd-php4 "/php4/php.exe"
AddType application/x-httpd-php4 .php
-------CUT HERE------------

I found what the error was:
Apache could not find odbc32.dll.
After I installed this library the server started normally.

I had the same problem -- the httpd.conf syntax was fine, but php4apache.dll refused to load. 

Suspecting a dependency issue, I fired up Dependency Walker. Sure enough, neither of the two DLLs it relies on ...

APACHECORE.DLL
PHP4TS.DLL

... were in the search path. Guessing that Apache knew where to find its DLL, I copied PHP4TS.DLL alongside it, and suddenly everything started behaving.

Hope that helps,

Sean.
