php postgres problem


i am developing a web based application on slack and slack has php already installed on it.. but not with postgres support.. so i downloaded the php4 package and configured with

./configure --with-pgsql

option (because this is what most of the documentation suggested)..

but postgres is still not working with php and i checked in phpinfo() but i could not find --with-pgsql there.. this means that php did not get configured with pgsql..

now is that because php was already installed on the system and i needed to remove the old distribution and install php --with-pgsql again??

what is the methodology to make php postgres compatible in my case??

pls help!!

regards

Yep ... you'll need to
removepkg <slacks-php>
and install yours again ... I assume that
you did more than the ./configure step, though?



Cheers,

thanks tink... yes i did do make and make install as well .. i m not very sure what else i need to do because there is not much documentation available for pgsql and php.. even the books are so few !! do you want to suggest something else or any particular knowledge source for configuration of php with pgsql..

Well, if
Code:
./configure --with-pgsql
went smooth (no complaints about missing
libraries or headers) it should be all fine I'd
tink :}
