After downloading the file (.msi installer) , run it . The installation wizard
is a next , next , finish ‘work’ … The installer will ask you some details like
your server name , your server adress and the admin’s mail adress . if
you have a domain name or a hostname , enter the info’s like this :

Server Name : your_domain.org

Server Adress : www.your-domain.org

Admin Email : admin@yourdomain.org

Let’s install PHP . download the archives from www.php.net . Here is a
direct link for verion 4.3.9 :

Code:
http://nl.php.net/get/php-4.3.9-Win32.zip/from/this/mirror

Make sure you download the archive and not the installer . Ok! after
downloading it , extract the archive in c:/php (this is to simplify paths) .
Now , open up c:/apache/conf/httpd.conf and search for this line :

Code:
#LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so
