(re-posting since post from 2010-10-21 didn't show up in digest or Oct. 
Trying to get Mapserver and PHP Mapscript installed, under already 
running Apache (XAMPP, W7, Apache 2.2.14 (Win32),PHP 5.3.1)
Have followed advice I could find, as best I could:
1. followed steps
Using files from ms4w 2.3.1.
So listed dlls are in C:\xampp\cgi-bin
php_mapscript.dllis in C:\xampp\php\ext
Various paths in conf/httpd.conf set
Mapserver running, for exampled testing 
OK; commandline tools OK.
php.ini has extension=php_mapscript.dll, php.ini is the correct one 
(have activated/deactivated several other extensions which are then 
reflected in php_info)

2. now I want the PHP mapscript to work, the goal...
testing with quickmap.php (got rid of the dl() call as it's not 
supported and I have mapscript in php.ini as an extension)
"Call to undefined function ms_newMapObj() 
in*C:\xampp\htdocs\quickmap.php*on line*27"
*hmm, ok, and the mapscript extension is not showing up in php_info either
running: php.exe ....htdocs/phpinfo_mapscript.php or any *.php using the 
mapscript dll, getting
Module compiled with module API=20060613
PHP compiled with module API=20090626
...they must match ...

Suggestions? Do I have to compile php_mapscript.dll to somehow match the 
PHP compilation?
