Apache...OK.....PHP......uuuhhh


Hey guys...

SO I have Apache up and running and a website runnning perfectly. Thing is, I cant get the PHP module to load up. I follow the instructions on the php.net website and they seeem to be for the version of apache2.0 not 2.2...and I know that from 2.0 to 2.2 they changed their def. directory am I correct? Anyhow, I am running Fedora 4 and Apache 2.2 and apparently I have PHP5 installed, but I cant find the *.so file that I need to load into Apache....maybe I need to change something in the way PHP installs?

Thanks...

Do you have:
Code:
LoadModule php5_module    modules/libphp5.so
somewhere in one of your apache conf files?

You will also have to add:
Code:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
So apache knows to send *.php files to the interpreter. You don't really need to know where the .so file is, as long as apache can find it, and if it is installed properly it shouldn't be a problem.

bulliver: Perl DBI is needed for mysql.

cultavix: get a perl dbi package from your distro. If you've compiled php from source and you want mysql support, you'll need to recompile php.
And change the AddType to AddHandler. While both work, in the context of being correct with apache, AddHandler is the right directive to use for php.
