okay ive googled for LAMP tutorials and found quite a few the most current using mysql 4.0.16, which i downloaded. Well all tutorials ive seen say to use:
#./configure –prefix=/usr/local/mysql –localstatedir=/usr/local/mysql/data –disable-maintainer-mode –with-mysqld-user=mysql –enable-large-files-without-debug
to configure mysql, well when i do that it says that prefix is invalid variable as well as the rest of the variables listed. The only way i could get it to work is to just use:
which is fine but then to compile PHP the way the tutorial explains you have to use the settings it listed. Im still pretty new to linux(compiling and installing stuff) so if i just use ./configure i have no idea how to compile php to use it....
So my question is does anyone have a better tutorial on how to do this, I already have apache installed
thats the article im using in case anyone was wondering
