Good day!

I would like to know if it is possible to compile a php script as a DSO under Apache and Linux. (How?)

If not, how would I create a DSO (under Apache and Linux) that can receive "POST" and "GET" and connect to a MySQL Database?

Thanx in advance!

p.s the keyword here is "free product" - Zend compiler is out of the question.

If your apache is complied with DSO support you can easy configure php to be used as a DSO by compiling PHP with the option

./configure --with-apxs=`which apxs` (apache 1.3)
./configure --with-apxs2='which apxs2` (apache 2.0)
make
make install

see http://de3.php.net/manual/en/install.unix.apache.php or http://de3.php.net/manual/en/install.unix.apache2.php

Hi hernst42

I would like to compile a php script as a DSO and not the php interpreteritself. I want to leave the php interpreter as a 3rd party installation away from apache.

Thanx!

I don't think it is possible to to compile a php-script so it is usable as standalone without any php-interpreter.

To create such a DSO you have to register certain functions in apache for your DSO and you have to write that DSO in C. A good start might be the SAPI-handler for apache in the PHP-souces (sapi/apache) or you look at other apache-modules like mod_mysql, but that will be a lot of work to realize such a thing.

Hi hernst42

Thanx for the help!

I suppose that what I am trying to achieve is not possible.

If I compile the php interpreter as a DSO, would I be able to use the php functions in a C script? and then compile that script as a DSO?
