[ms4w-users] Problems with PHP MapScript (php_mapscript_48.dll)

Hi All,

I've installed a fresh copy of MS4W 1.5.5 (mapserver 4.8.4, php 4.4.3-dev, 
apache 2.0.58, MapLab 2.2.1) for testing pourpouses. I've done this because 
of the behavior of MapLab with PHP 5.x (bundled in MS4W 2.x)

I tried to run a simple "hello_world" PHP script (phpms_hola-mundo.php) and 
I get this error:

  Fatal error: Call to undefined function: ms_newmapobj() in 
C:\ms4w\apps\mis_pruebas\htdocs\phpms_hola-mundo.php on line 9

where line 9 of the script is:

  $map = ms_newMapObj("/ms4w/apps/mis_pruebas/htdocs/hola-mundo.map");

I've checked the configuration with
php ..\htdocs\phpinfo_mapscript_48.php
and seems to be all fine...
MapScript Version: ($Revision: $ $Date: 2006/03/16 21:03:01 $)

Confusingly, I didn't get a warning of the kind:

  Warning: dl() [function.dl]: Unable to load dynamic library 

or something similar. Only the error mentioned above.

Is there someone to give me a hand on this problem?

Thanks in advance,
