I'm running Debian Woody. I needed a more up-to-date version of PHP than Woody offered so compiled and installed from the source code instead of using apt-get. It looks like this decision is coming back to haunt me.
I need to install the imap extension for php and I don't really know where to begin. I can't use apt-get install because Debian wants to install php4 (apt doesn't know it's already installed).
I looked at http://us2.php.net/imap
to see how to manually install it but I simply don't understand it. Plus, even if I do figure it out, I'm worried about how this will affect Apache. Will I need to recompile PHP into Apache, too?
So, because I'm not sure how to accomplish this, I'm stuck because I'm worried I'm going to end up breaking something on my server. Can anyone offer some basic guidance? Thanks.
