Question Upgrading Apache/PHP on Redhat 9


Hey, please help a true n00b: I installed Redhat Linux 9 using my Dell ServerAssistant CDs and its up and running perfectly. Except, its running old versions of Apache (2.0.40) and PHP (4.2.2). Up2date doesn't seem to upgrade them, so I assume I need to upgrade them from source.

I would like to know if there is a HOW-TO about how to maintain the configuration of Apache/PHP and just upgrade it in situ? Any pointers you can give me would be appreciated!

Thanks.

1 - Download the latest version of apache, extract it , then run ./configure, make and make install.
2 - Download the latest version of php, then run ./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs , make and make install.
You can add of course other options to the configure script.
Your old apache configuration files are located in /etc, and the new ones are located in /usr/local/apache2/conf. Edit the new httpd.conf as needed.
3- Remove the old apache and php.
4-/usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start to start apache.
regards,
HTH.

Guys I am in this situation. I have enough knowledge to be dangerous and am trying to setup my dev platform for a website using Lin/Apache/MySQL instead of Win/IIS/MySQL and tend to use the command line rather than the package managers. Problem is I installed Apache 1.3x in a vague attempt to get a fresh installation but Apache 2 is installed and now I don't know what is running from where. Apparently its apache 2 and php is working with MySQL available but none of the MySQL functions work. and apxs is not found anywhere but listed in the php build list etc - I'm lost.

I want to blow away all apaches then start again with only one version of PHP and Apache.

Where is everything??? ver 2 seems to be in /usr/sbin and /var/www and 1.3 is in its own place in /usr/local and god knows what is configured where in /etc/...

I am tempted to start again with a new Linux install and not select Apache on install but there must be a simple wya to get rid of them all!
