Doc Bug #79752 "LoadModule php_module" required, not php8_module
Submitted: 2020-06-28 10:11 UTC Modified: 2020-06-30 13:54 UTC

Status: Closed Package: *Configuration Issues
PHP Version: 8.0.0alpha1 OS: Windows Server 2019 64bit
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

When configuring PHP8 alpha1 for apache by loading php8apache2_4.dll I configured the config line as:

LoadModule php8_module "N:\Apache\php8\php8apache2_4.dll"

according to the longtime praxis of using 

LoadModule php7_module "N:/Apache/php7/php7apache2_4.dll"

This failed to load the module.

Instead I had to guess to use 

LoadModule php_module "N:\Apache\php8\php8apache2_4.dll"

instead which worked.

This change should be documented in the incompatible changes section of the release notes and by a correct example in the chapter for installing under Windows / under apache.

- Windows server 2019 64bit Standard in a VM under HyperV
- Apache 2.43 64bit from apachelounge
- php 8 alpha1 64bit thread safe from QA download
- php loaded as a module with php_module

Indeed, this has been changed[1].  @nikic, shouldn't this also be
mentioned in UPGRADING?
