A colleague set up a directory within htdocs called PHP which contained several html & PHP files.

We got a 404 Error every time we wanted to access anything within that directory, and the Apache error log said that the browser was trying to access the file (say test.php) from c:\php\test.php. Turns out it was because the directory was called PHP. I renamed it and all was fine.

I guess it's a mix-up with the ScriptAlias in httpd.conf? Not sure if it's an Apache or a PHP problem, so I thought I'd let you both know!

Didn't find anything on this online anywhere either.

apache configuration problem.

You have aliased the /php subdirectory, that means that you will not be able to put files in that real directory.

The same for /icons, try having a htdocs/icons/ dir, it won't work with the default installation...

This is not a bug, but a apache-configuration issue. There's no problem when you use the isapi module, but you can also rename the /php script alias to something wierd, like JBSDLJKJVBDS.
