Hi,

I have installed Apache 2.2.15 and it was tested successful and
working fine.
As a next step I installed php-5.3.2-Win32-VC6-x86 on Windows XP
SP3.Now when I restart the Apache server I am getting an error the

following message

"Apache HTTP Server has encountered a problem and needs to close.  We
are sorry for the inconvenience." and I had been given two options

send error report to microsoft and other option is dont send.
when i clicked on the error report technical information I could see
the following information:
C:\DOCUME~1\IMTIYA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERcee8.dir00\httpd.exe.mdmp
C:\DOCUME~1\IMTIYA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERcee8.dir00\appcompat.txt

I tried restarting the system and also uninstalling and installing
Apache and PHP again but I am having the same issue.

The Apache error file under the logs folder had the following
information:
Starting the Apache2.2 service
The Apache2.2 service is running.
