Question No Make File!

I installed Apache successfully & then tried to install PHP-5.2.4 from a tar.gz file. After uncompressing the tar.gz file, this is how I configured PHP (as described in the help file):

./configure --build=i586-alt-linux --host=i586-alt-linux --exec-prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin --sysconfdir=/etc --datadir=/usr/share --includedir=/usr/include --libdir=/usr/lib --libexecdir=/usr/lib --localstatedir=/var/lib --sharedstatedir=/usr/com --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --disable-dependency-tracking --without-included-gettext --prefix=/usr --enable-inline-optimization --with-pic --enable-cli --disable-cgi --disable-debug --enable-safe-mode --disable-magic-quotes --disable-rpath --enable-bcmath --enable-ctype --enable-ftp --enable-session --enable-shmop --enable-sysvsem --enable-sysvshm --enable-libxml --disable-dom --disable-simplexml --disable-hash --enable-xml --enable-wddx --enable-shared=yes --enable-static=no --enable-so --with-layout=GNU --with-exec-dir=/usr/bin --with-zlib=/usr --with-gettext=/usr --with-iconv --without-mysql --with-mm=/usr --without-sqlite --with-regex=php --without-pear --with-config-file-path=/etc/php/5.2.4/apache-2.2.4-mod_php --with-mssql=/usr --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache-2.2.4/bin/apxs --with-apache2=/usr/local/apache-2.2.4

Next when I executed make, the following error got generated:

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

When I had a look at the directory in which I uncompressed the tar.gz file, thereīs no file named Makefile though there are files named Makefile.frag, Makefile.fragments, Makefile.gcov,, Makefile.objects, makedist & makerpm.

Why didnīt the Makefile get created when I configured PHP? It should have, isnīt it?

I am really having a harrowing time installing LAMP. I had installed PHP successfully earlier but after installing MySQL, PHP refused to run.

Some PLEASE give me a solution to overcome this problem. Itīs driving me nuts. Itīs been more than a week since I started installing LAMP & till now, I havenīt managed to install it.

Yes, sure. If the configuration process did not report any error. Have you noticed some error message during configuration? You can look also at config.log, which is usually created at configuration time.
