Adding PHP to Apache on Linux - page 10
Supercharging Your Web Pages
To build Apache from source (e.g., your Linux distribution package didn't provide the pieces necessary to add PHP), use the following commands as a quick-start. Download the latest released version of the Apache tarball and unpack it into a working directory. The top-level directory will then be
./apache-1.3, which matches assumption #1 described earlier.
% cd ./apache-1.3 % env CC=gcc CFLAGS="-O2 -Wall" \ > ./configure --enable-shared=max --enable-module=most \ > --with-layout=Apache --prefix=/usr/local/web/apache \ > --with-port=80 Configuring for Apache, Version 1.3.10-dev + using installation path layout: Apache (config.layout) Creating Makefile Creating Configuration.apaci in src [more configuration output] % make [lots of compilation output] % make install [lots more output describing file placement] % /usr/local/web/apache/bin/apachectl start
If there are no errors, you should now have a working Apache installation in the location that matches assumption #2 described earlier. It was written to work with dynamic modules rather than static ones, so build PHP as a dynamic module.
It's far beyond the scope of this article to give any more information about building Apache; it is about PHP, after all. If you'd like to see an article in this column about the details of building Apache, let me know.
