One thing I came accross, if after installation you get httpd core 
dumps, try commenting out extensions in extensions.ini. Then switch them 
back one after another to determine which one causes the dump. Then your 
option is to change the order of extensions. This is just in case but it 
was my problem and I couldn't quickly restore web functionality after 
restarting httpd and seeing the crushes.

All the best,
