just wondering, i can install apache2 on debian by getting it from backports, thats great, but how do i get php4 packages working with apache2 coz those are compiled for apache... now i know, i have to compile it my self, so, how is it done the debian way, so i get packages out of compilation and install them, with apache2....
well, simple, i want apache2 and php4 installed, as smooth as apache1 and php4...
i know there is make-pkg right? is that the same as make? just it makes a package out of it?
Just did this myself. Got the source codes and compiled myself. Both apache and php have good instructions on their sites, but this is the set I ended up following, mainly because they are all together.
Distribution: Gentoo Kernel 2.6.8-gentoo-r3; AMD Athlon XP 2200+
I don't think that they do. I've been banging my head against php4 with apache2-mpm-prefork, as distributed in SID. Apache 2 seems to work very well, but as soon as i load the php module, the whole thing goes to crap; broken image links, broken icon links, pages won't load on localhost, different problems that I just can't seem to resolve: as I've had trouble compiling as well as installing binaries for apache2, i'm going to stick with apache1.3 until apache2 becomes a bit more mainstream for production.
