Help fixing/reconfiguring PHP on Apache
i have an Apache server running and i've been wanting to get PHP on it to play with, but i have had some problems. after finding my way out of dependency hell i got ./configure to finally run through, but i had to do:
./ configure --disable-simplexml --disable-libxml --disable-xml --without-pear
if i didnt do that then i would get an error dealing with my xml2-config file. so i did that and then make and then make install and all was well, so i thought.
i have a book "Beginning PHP 5 and MySQL" by W. Jason Gilmore that i've been using to help my install and the book says to use:
./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs [other options]
i dont know what that does, so i dont know that because I DIDNT select that option and installed it, if that messed my install up. as the book states, i also did:
cp php.ini-dist /usr/local/lib/php.ini
and i also added to my httpd.conf file the following:
LoadModule php5_module modules/libphp5.so
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
so now when i try to start Apache it says:
[root@localhost root]# /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start Syntax error on line 233 of /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf:
Cannot load /usr/local/apache2/modules/libphp5.so into server: /usr/local/apache2/modules/libphp5.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
i installed php-5.0.4 and httpd-2.0.54
sorry for the long post, any help is much appreciated!!!
