    libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll  to the C:/WINNT (Windows 2000) or C:/Windows
    (WindowsXP and 2003) directory. (if php4ts.dll or php5ts.dll not found in your
    computer thn search in google and download. other two dll can found in the dlls
    directory of your PHP directory(may be in c:/php/ext))
  3. restart Apache service.
