Upgrading PHP to include MySQL support
I am running Fedora Core 2, Apache 2.0.49, MySQL4.1.8-standard. I just used yum to upgrade PHP from 4.3.4 to 4.3.8 (I was hoping for 4.3.9).
My question is, what is the best approach to recompile PHP to upgrade to 4.3.9 and include MySQL support?
I have downloaded the source and figure that the best way to do it is to compile from that. However, I have two concerns: 1) Will this leave me with two parallel installations of PHP? and 2) the configure command from phpinfo() includes --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs, but apxs is not there (or anywhere else, for that matter).
