PHP 5.1.6

Building a Web Server, for Windows


  • Apache 2.0


Our Configuration

  • %SYSTEMROOT% : Win2000 -> C:\WINNT, WinXP -> C:\Windows
  • Install to : C:\www\php
  • Apache path : C:\www\Apache2
  • Server webroot : C:\www\webroot
  • PHP run-type : Apache 2.0 dynamically loaded SAPI module, php5apache2.dll
  • Built-in support for : SSL(OpenSSL), compression(zlib), MySQL


  • Unpack as C:\www\php-5.1.6-Win32
  • Rename directory C:\www\php-5.1.6-Win32 to C:\www\php
  • Copy file php.ini-recommended from C:\www\php to your %SYSTEMROOT% directory
  • Rename file %SYSTEMROOT%\php.ini-recommended to php.ini
  • Edit %SYSTEMROOT%\php.ini
    • doc_root = C:/www/webroot/
      [the directory your web server will be serving content from]
    • extension_dir = C:/www/php/ext/
    • session.save_path = C:/www/tmp/
      [location where temporary data files should be stored, needed for PHP's session functions]
      [make sure this directory exists - if not, create it]
  • Add C:\www\php to the System PATH
    • Set PATH under Start » Settings » Control Panel » System » Advanced » Environment Variables » System variables » Path
      [make sure that files php5ts.dll and php5apache2.dll do NOT also reside under your %SYSTEMROOT%\system32 directory, from a previous installation]

PHP Extensions

  • Edit %SYSTEMROOT%\php.ini, uncomment the extensions you wish to use under the 'Dynamic Extensions' Section.
  • Note that MySQL support is no longer provided by default -- uncomment extension 'php_mysql.dll' for MySQL 4.0 or insert new extension 'php_mysqli.dll' for MySQL 4.1+ support

Configuration for Apache 2.0

  • Edit C:\www\Apache2\conf\httpd.conf
    • Add LoadModule php5_module C:/www/php/php5apache2.dll to the bottom of the LoadModule list
      [note the unix forward style slashes (/), instead of windows style back slashes (\)]
    • Edit DirectoryIndex index.html index.html.var index.php
      [adds index.php to the end of the DirectoryIndex field]
    • Insert lines...
      AddType application/x-httpd-php .php [maps file extension .php to PHP]
      AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps [activates PHP syntax coloring]

Configuration for zlib

Modifications need to be made to php.ini to switch on zlib compression detection and encoding.

  • Edit %SYSTEMROOT%\php.ini
    • Method 1: [Recommended]
      Leave the compression to Apache's mod_deflate (which can work around browsers that do not conform to the standards and deal with proxies)...
      • output_buffering = On
      • output_handler =
      • zlib.output_compression = Off
    • Method 2:
      Redirect all output to the ob_gzhandler compression function...
      • output_buffering = On
      • output_handler = ob_gzhandler
      • zlib.output_compression = Off
    • Method 3:
      Transparent output compression using the zlib library...
      • output_buffering = Off
      • output_handler =
      • zlib.output_compression = On


  • Create phpinfo.php, containing the following code, and place under Apache's webroot directory...
    <?php phpinfo(); ?>
  • Access URL http://localhost/phpinfo.php
