PHP doesn't work with Apache 2.3 series.
On Apache 2.3 the ap_get_server_version() function has been replace by ap_get_server_banner() & ap_get_server_description().

See the Apache changelog (from trunk) :
* 20060905.0 (2.3.0-dev)  Replaced ap_get_server_version() with
*                         ap_get_server_banner() and ap_get_server_description()

Actual result:
httpd: Syntax error on line 53 of /Web/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load /Web/modules/ into server: /Web/modules/ undefined symbol: ap_get_server_version

Here is the patch allow PHP to support Apache > 2.3.
I add a new function - apache_get_description() that used the new Apache function ap_get_server_description(). This new function allow you to get the platform description :]

Awaiting your feedbacks

Sorry, here is the new link.

The patch itself looks ok to me, but I still see little sense in breaking API compatibility by removing ap_get_server_version() and introducing ap_get_server_banner(), so I would prefer asking Apache Group to leave ap_get_server_version() for BC.
Though, I repeat, the patch looks fine.
