Installing Apache 2.2.x failing on Informix, RedHat EL 4

I'm having problems installing Apache 2.2.x on our development server, running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. The platform is IA64, though the specific problem seems to be related to Informix.

We run both MySQL and Informix on this machine as it's a development box. When updating/installing Apache on our other servers in Informix- or MySQL-only environments, I've never encountered a problem like this.

The Apache configuration and compilation stages complete successfully, but when I get to make install, I'm presented with the following:
[root@rh4-mysql-dev httpd-2.2.4]# make install
Making install in srclib
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/httpd-2.2.4/srclib'
Making install in apr
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/local/httpd-2.2.4/srclib/apr'
make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/local/httpd-2.2.4/srclib/apr'
make[3]: Nothing to be done for `local-all'.
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/httpd-2.2.4/srclib/apr'
/usr/local/httpd-2.2.4/srclib/apr/build/ /usr/local/apache2/lib /usr/local/apache2/bin /usr/local/apache2/build \
             /usr/local/apache2/lib/pkgconfig /usr/local/apache2/include
/var/informix10/etc/install -c -m 644 /usr/local/httpd-2.2.4/srclib/apr/include/apr.h /usr/local/apache2/include

Installation Script

Installation Script Requirements:
- A user "informix" and a group "informix" must be known to the system.
- The product source files must have been loaded by user informix.
- This installation procedure must be run by user informix.

This script will change the owner, group, and mode of
many of the files of this package in this directory.

Please rerun this installation procedure as the informix user.

make[2]: *** [install] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/httpd-2.2.4/srclib/apr'
make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/httpd-2.2.4/srclib'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
At first glance it seems like logging on as the Informix user and running the installation process would solve the problem, but when this happens the script seems to hang indefinitely.

Any help any of you might be able to provide will of course be appreciated; and I'll do my best to answer any questions you might have that might lead to a solution.

After trying to solve this problem for the last few days, and remaining unsuccessful, I decided to install Apache 2.0.59 to see if I encountered the same problem.

As it turns out, Apache 2.0.59 compiles and installs fine. It even runs fine. However, when I compile and install PHP 5.2.0, 5.1.6, or 5.1.5, the module is never generated, despite having all of the proper configuration options set (--with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2.0.59/bin/apxs for PHP and --enable-so for Apache).

I've searched extensively on the problem, and while many people have experienced this problem, very few have ever seemed to solve it. It appears I'm dead-in-the-water for the time being.

For now PHP is running but not as an Apache module; I can only use it as a command-line tool.

Surely someone has encountered this Apache2/Informix problem.


apache2, installation, libphp5so, php5, redhat, server, software
