Also if you want to upgrade PHP just download the Zipped binaries package and extract the contents of the zip file where your PHP folder is setup to and overrite ALL current files in that folder.
Now you need to edit your httpd.conf file and if you configured Apache to use PHP as a module you'll need to modify it slghtly, such as changing any instance of isapi/php4apache.dll or isapi/php4apache2.dll to php5apache.dll or php5apache2.dll
And thats it! You have now upgraded PHP, save your httpd.conf and restart Apache. If you did it in a different way or used a different server, like IIS, then it may take bit more editing.
If you're not on Windows and are using *nix based OS then you may need to recomiple PHP to the setup you want.

i setup php differently in apache than what you listed btw i did it the cgi way, i believe thats what its called. calling php.exe which in php 5 i learned was renamed to php-cgi.exe
