Quite a simple problem but it caused me lots of trouble since there are very few trouble shooting tools for the configuration files.

php4apache.dll is in the wrong directory and will not work if you follow the installation instructions for installing php as an apache module. If you were like me, you might have caught that after lots of wasted time and changed the path. But no, that didn't work. Took me another hour to try moving the file to the right directory and bingo, it works just fine now.

The sapi directory is clearly incorrect. Even if you change the path in your httpd.conf file, it still will not run. It must be put into c:/php or the root of your tree.
