Hi, Experts,

I'm trying to use Tomcat 5.5.7 to run PHP. I just want to use one web server in my PC. And I found there is a link can help me : http://wiki.apache.org/jakarta-tomcat/UsingPhp

But I'm confused about the step 2. Can anyone explain what does that mean? i.e. 1.2. Configure and make PHP Installation:

Thanks in advance!

This means that you are to build it from source. Since you don't understand it, i'm assuming that you're using windows. You'll have to look for a windows implementation if you really are running windows.

Hello, Thanks for your reply, I already installed php through php windows installer. should i configure php under dos? how ?

in step 2 it shows :

./configure --with-servlet=$TOMCAT_HOME --with-java=$JAVA_HOME
A jarfile and dynamic library are produced: sapi/servlet/phpsrvlt.jar and libs/libphp4.so.

anyway, i don't have clue about this, and i'm cosidering using IIS now.

Thanks for your attention,

allow me to explain, when you say ./configure and make, these are steps for creating the program in linux or unix systems. It's how programs installation works on those systems. There is a big difference between linux and dos, and dos does not do something similar to this. I suggest that you do switch to IIS.
