Creating deb pages so I don't need to compile from source again


Hi, I'm trying to build a LAMP server however because it's a dev server we have to compile php from source to ensure it's exactly the same as our host. I.e. same version of php with the same configuration and extensions.

I was wondering if it's possible to compile it/ build a deb package on my pc at home so I can just install the deb package at work. Compiling can take fairly long time and the dev server is P3 with limited ram. We're going to put more ram in but it may not be anytime soon.

My greatest worry is the processor on my machine is intel core2 and the server has a p3. Would that cause any compatibility issues

Yes it's possible.Here's a link to a how-to:

I'm not 100% sure on this,maybe someone more knowledgeable can add to this.
I think it's more important what o/s architecture you run on your home machine compared to what the server uses.
