i tried to install php4.2 with pfpro for verisign support and mysql, apxs support. but it does not work, though i do not get installation error. pfpro_init(); does not work after complete installation and restarting apache.

if i do not configure php using shared option, it crashes apache.

currently my apache running with php, but is not supporting pfpro from Verisign. (gives error as it could not find pfpro_init();)

my current configure options were

./configure --with-mysql --with-apxs --with-pfpro=shared,/usr/local/pfpro

where pfpro in /usr/local/ contains pfpro SDK 3.0

Does NE1 have NE idea, how to get pfpro with php+apache working. is there any alternative to run pfpro on linux+apache.

samOne - you have to make sure you've copied the lib files from the pfpro SDK to the correct directory.  and that --with-pfpro points to the correct directory.  and check your environment varibale (the certs path - see the readme).  check the readme files with the SDK for these locations or do a google search for help with php pfpro install.  someone out there tells you how to get this setup.
alternatives to php+pfpro are perl+pfpro, but i'm pretty sure that separates php and pfpro.  you could try and work exec() from php to the pfpro binary....hope this helps.
