PHP with PayFlow pro built in

I am a new user and have a need for PHP compiled with some other stuff

I have had php 4.3.4 built for RH7.3 by a company that charged me $50 to do it. Now, i need the sasme version 4.3.4 with this stuff below

Verisign says:

These functions are only available if PHP has been compiled with the --with-pfpro[=DIR] option.

If you are planing to use this extension along with the OpenSSL extension or with ModSSL, you should compile this extension as shared: --with-pfpro=shared,/usr/local.

I have the sdk and put the files in the right places i just dunno how to build php.

Do i need the php source or an rpms?

Sounds like you need to build PHP from source. Basically, download the source from and run ./configure (with the correct parameters, including --with-pfpro or whatever) then make, and finalle make install. I've done this several times, and it's really not so hard. There's a guide to it on -- I'd suggest going through it, and ask if you have questions.

Is this something to be done even if i run plesk and have had this done before by another person, is there a chance that i miss something when doing this?

I mean for example when this was odne before with switches and such, what if i do not incluide those this time around will me setup be broken then?

OK i am gonna try this

OK well i dont see anything about plesk, and i am gonna try it.

Could i just do the last part
10. Now, configure your PHP. This is where you customize your PHP
with various options, like which extensions will be enabled. Do a
./configure --help for a list of available options. In our example
we'll do a simple configure with Apache 1 and MySQL support. Your
path to apxs may differ from our example.

./configure --with-mysql --with-apxs=/www/bin/apxs

11. make
12. make install

Or do i need to do steps 1 - 9 even though php is already runnin?
