Apache 1.3.33 + PHP 5.02 problems...

So I decided I wanted a home server computer.

So I installed Gentoo on one of my unused boxes. Now because it's a slower box, it took ~ a week to install Gentoo. And then it didn't boot.

So I said to myself "screw that, I'll just put Mandrake 10 on it.". Well it turns out the ISO I downloaded is corrupt, so I couldn't install Mandrake.

"Fine," I finally concluded, "I'll put Fedora Core 2 on it!"

And here I am, running FC2. So I thought I would download the Apache + PHP source and compile / install it, but that turned out to be a major pain in the ass, so I decided I'd try Fedora's touchy-feely pacakge installer thing to do it. So I selected the packages I wanted, and hit next. It said put the 1st CD in, which I did. And it couldn't see it. I made sure it was mounted, hell, I even set a path to the CD to no avail.

So my question(s) is / are this:

1. Why can't it see the CD? And what do I do to fix this?


2. I edited my httpd.conf file according to, but then I couldn't start Apache, it kept saying the module didn't exist (and it didn't), so after running "./configure && make && make install" in the PHP source directory, where the hell did it put the damned module? Did it even put a module anywhere? WTF? Why doesn't their software reflect what their website says?

Thanks in advance, guys.

When installing Apache and Php you need to pass a few arguments for enabling module support

Check this link for installing Apache+PHP+MySQL [The last section is for enabling module support]
