php and apache on Mandrake 8.2
I have sucessfully installed apache and mysql from the rpms using the software manager. I have now tried the same with php4, that comes on the disks, but I can't get it to work.
According to the software manager mod_php4 is installed.
I have followed several other posts and edited hhtpd.conf by adding :
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType apllication/x-httpd-php-source .phps
LoadModule php4_module libexec/libphp4.so
In the other posts it says I should also copy a file php.ini-dist to the apache/conf folder, thing is, I can't find that file so I am stuck
I have tried> find -name php.ini*
and >locate php.ini*
and all variations in between....
Where to go from here.
What is making things a bit harder is the fact that
1) I am a newbie
2) The other posts and help files etc all install from scratch, so my directories are all named differently and it's confusing.
3) I've only got a small brain ;-)
