Enabling PHP on Apache web server that is locally installed in my home directory
Posted on 2004-08-17
Hello I am a novice when it comes to computers in general.With a great amt of help from this forumn I have been able to intstall Apache web server in my home directory ...
This is working fine and I am able to test some CGI scripts and everything is working fine.
Now I need to install PHP(enable PHP) for my local httpd server.I tried to install it but could not ...as it is trying to install somethings where I dont have permissions.
My question is how do I install PHP locally and make it work..DO I have to specify or give a path wherein it checks only the local installation not the main server.
This is what I have tried so far ...
$ cd php-4.3
Till here everething seem to work
$make install ---This gives a no permission error
Thanks for your time....I appreciate it
