I have downloaded and installed Apache2 but can't seem to get PHP to install.

I want all the XML functions and obviously mySQL.

Each time on php install I put
./configure --with-mysql --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-xml

but I don't get anything in the modules directory ?

How do I install it !

Do you run make and make install after configure ??

Just to make thing clear I don't know how familiar are you with the UNIX build environment but theese are the steps you should follow.


1) run the configure script with the options you want to enable, eg ./configure --with-mysql --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-xml

2) type make to compile and build the php library
3) make install installs the libraries and configuration files.

I have done that make and configure in PHP.

I then start Apache2  /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start

But it won't run PHP. I have tried altering the httpd.conf to run PHP - but the advice I was following didn't seem to work. It referenced the modules folder - which I assume is the one in the apache dir. This didn't have any php module in after the make and build. I still have the old copy of apache 1.3 somewhere - do you think it is installing into that ?

done it now - for some reason it didn't build properly. A make clean did the job
