make sure you've got everything you need un-commented or commented in your httpd.conf. I run apache 1.3.6+php3.0.16 on my windows machine, and I rarely run into problems (only with CGI-BIN related stuff). Don't be afraid to take some time and read/understand what the descriptions are in the httpd.conf file, and whether or not they apply to your system configuration.

actually the problem was with my windows registry.
when i edited it i got two entries for apache 1 for 1.3.6 n onother for 1.3.12
i removed both n installed apache 1.3.12 agin n it's working smooth with PHP 3.0.16
