./configure - no such file....


Hi there,

I am compiling an application from source but I get this error when I configure the make file with ./configure (with and without parameters):

bash: ./configure : no such file or directory

I have gcc and make installed in my conputer is there something missing to compile ?

Thanks for your help...

Tuka

Can you provide a bit mroe info:
What are you installing?
Do the compile instructions for that application say to use ./configure?
Did you "cd" into the source dir first?

In the source directory of the program you downloaded there should be a README and possilby an INSTALL file (they are usually in caps). Read them. Some programs don't use configure.

I am trying to install PHP 4.2 and I am using the configure instructions from 2 books on the subject.... (one is Apache Admin handbook) I just tried ./configure by itself (no parameters) and I got the above mentioned response...



I also tried

./configure --with-mysql=/directory where mysql is located/

with the same result.....

I will try to find an install file.........
