Installing PHP


Hi all.

I'm newbie on linux, php etc. I downloaded some tar.gz files extract the original ones and tried to follow the steps on the INSTALL of PHP. I used the following command syntax: ./configure --with-mysql=/usr/bin/ --with-xml --with-apache/usr/src/apache_1.3.28/ --with-curl=/usr/src/curl-7.10.7/
MySQL was installed by the use of RPM.
After a lot of lines and time the following warning appeared on the screen:
configure: error: There is something wrong. Please check config.log for more information.
I checked out config.log and there was a lot of errors. The line and error are:
configure:1618: checking host system type
configure:1706: checking for gcc
configure:1819: checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) works
configure:1835: gcc -o conftest conftest.c 1>&5
configure:1861: checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) is a cross-compiler
configure:1866: checking whether we are using GNU C
configure:1875: gcc -E conftest.c
configure:1894: checking whether gcc accepts -g
configure:1927: checking whether gcc and cc understand -c and -o together
configure:1942: gcc -c conftest.c -o conftest.o 1>&5
configure:1943: gcc -c conftest.c -o conftest.o 1>&5
configure:1948: cc -c conftest.c 1>&5
configure:1950: cc -c conftest.c -o conftest.o 1>&5
configure:1951: cc -c conftest.c -o conftest.o 1>&5
configure:1978: checking how to run the C preprocessor
configure:1999: gcc -E conftest.c >/dev/null 2>conftest.out
configure:2059: checking for AIX
configure:2086: checking if compiler supports -R
configure:2101: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 conftest.c -R /usr/lib 1>&5
gcc: unrecognized option `-R'
/usr/lib: file not recognized: Is a directory
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure: failed program was:
#line 2094 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"

int main() {

; return 0; }

Could anyone, please, help me and say what i'm doing wrong?
Thanks.

Vinicius

as a new user i would seriously recommend using rpm's to install applications just until you feel a bit more confident with playing with config installs

Thanks for your reply and recommendation. I was just trying to follow the steps of a book.
In reality all I need is having apache (http and https), PHP and MySQL working together. What you mean is that installing the packages will make things easier for me?

installing binaries instead of compliling source code can make things A LOT easier.

you can make your LAMP server (linux, apache, mysql, and php) by simply installing the RPMs... they are on your linux cds or you can get them from a red hat 9.0 mirror.

http://www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/RPM-HOWTO/

http://www.redhat.com/docs/books/max-rpm/

here's amirror with the 9.0 rpms:

ftp://mirrors.secsup.org/pub/linux/r...86/RedHat/RPMS

if you want a super-friendly way of administrating the apache and mysql servers i suggest webmin... yes, they have an rpm.

rpms that aren't on the cds or mirrors can usually be found here:
