PHP 5.4.0 x64 (64 Bit) for Windows

PHP 5.4.0 was released on March 1, 2012. Check out the release announcement here if you haven’t already, to learn about major changes and new features.

Here are the 64 bit thread safe and non thread safe binaries for Windows that many of you have been waiting for. As usual they were compiled with Visual C++ 2008 and they were compiled against latest versions of OpenSSL (1.0.1) and ICU (49.1.1). I was very busy last month and as a result I was unable to compile and post these earlier.

Additional Extensions

There are extensions which are currently not compatible with PHP 5.4. eAccelerator and WinCache are good examples. I am not sure if eAccelerator will ever be updated to be compatible with PHP 5.4 but a compatible version of WinCache will be released soon according to this post on

Anyway, I will compile all the extensions for PHP 5.4 that I have previously compiled for PHP 5.3. That is if they are compatible of course. And as usual, they will be available in the following mediafire folder –

Currently only the APC extension is available. I will compile and upload the other extensions soon.
