Need help installing php4 as a module

Recommended Posts

hello, i am relitivly new to the linux scene, altho i have studied the linux OS for a while. I am running Fedora core 5 on Vmware virtual server GSX. I wanted to install a webserver with php and mysql so i could test out my websites i make. I installed Mysql5 succesfuly aswell as Apache2.2.0(i have tested both).

And then i went to install php following [a href=\"http://www.php.net/manual/en/install.unix.apache2.php\" target=\"_blank\"]this[/a] guide on php.net.

i go into the php directory i untarred the files to and then type:

./configure --with-mysql --with-apxs2=/usr/local/Apache2/bin/apxs

after a little bit the command prompt comes back and i type:


I then get this warning before the command prompt comes back : [a href=\"http://img148.imageshack.us/my.php?image=makewarn9tz.jpg\" target=\"_blank\"]http://img148.imageshack.us/my.php?image=makewarn9tz.jpg[/a]
i ignore it and type:

make install

and i get this: [a href=\"http://img141.imageshack.us/my.php?image=makeinstall0fl.jpg\" target=\"_blank\"]http://img141.imageshack.us/my.php?image=makeinstall0fl.jpg[/a]

this is what my /usr/local/Apache2/modules dir looks like: [a href=\"http://img135.imageshack.us/my.php?image=modules5za.jpg\" target=\"_blank\"]http://img135.imageshack.us/my.php?image=modules5za.jpg[/a]

where is this libphp4.so file? do i make it or something? please help!
(i followed the php.net guide to install apache aswell)

EDIT: should i just install php as a static module?
