php7.4 installation with Apache24

Hi. I am new to the forum, I have encountered a stumbling block installing php with Apache and MySQL. I have used them years ago and I wish to utilize them for a new project. My operating system is Windows 10. Specifically, after following the installation instructions, Apache cannot find php7apache2_4.dll, even though the file is in the php directory c:/php.

Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

You can clutter your workstation up with a bunch of services with WAMP, or you can use vagrant or better yet Docker.  Most developers are using Docker now.  My advice is to install Docker and look for a tutorial that will help you get a LAMP development environment up under docker, using  a docker-compose.yml.

Thanks gizmola for the suggestions. Sad to say Docker created more obstacles - need Windows 10 Pro in order to install Hyper_V.

Does not answer why the following cannot "see" the file:


# PHP7 module
PHPIniDir "C:/php"
LoadModule php_module "C:/php/php7apache2_4.dll"     This file cannot be found!
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

After much wailing and grinding of teeth, as well as desk pounding, a solution has been identified and implemented. And it works. So onward.

The solution was found at php.watch via a lucky Google search.

# PHP7 module
PHPIniDir "C:/php"
LoadModule php7_module "C:/php/php7apache2_4.dll"     Change php_module to php7_module. Duh!
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

 

Thanks
