Apache 2.2 is installed on my Pentium 4 machine and I'm trying to get php-5.1.4 and mysql-5.0.22 up and running as well but with little luck.   I'm trying to do this all from command line (YUM doesn't seem to want to work so skip that).  What are the steps I should perform to get this done?  (I'm familiar with installing Apache, mySQL and PHP on Windows XP but Linux has me a bit stumped.)  The server is at http://voip.t1shopper.com/

I installed PHP however, I cannot find the php module to point the httpd.conf too...  I did all the installs, I just can't get them all working together...  That's why I need some help with step by step instructions...

Where did you install PHP? That's where the module will be.

Ah! Just thinking out loud.

You've got Apache installed.

Did you do that by hand or did you use a program?

program Apache2_2

sort of thing?

Is this what YUM does?

I suspect that you need to download the source and compile it either as a CGI module or into Apache.

With windows, you get pre-compiled binaries which is why it is so much easier.

I downloaded the source for Apache, PHP then did the configure, make, make install, etc.  So I did everything from scratch.

For Apache I did "configure -prefix=/usr/local/apache2" and it installed in the normal place (/usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf)
For PHP I did "configure -prefix=/usr/local/php -with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs -with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql" and it's not where I told it to install - it's not in /usr/local/php  
For mySQL I did "configure -prefix=/usr/local/mysql" and it's not where I told it to install - it's not in /usr/local/mysql

I'm happy to start from scratch again, if someone could just give me a few steps to follow... like this, (1) download the source (2) untar (3) run configure -monkey=bannana  -with=nuts  (4) make (5) make install (6) verify the files are in /usr/etc/dog/cat/spank_me/now/ (7) add the following line to the httpd.conf file "LoadModule php4_module        libexec/mod_php4-4.4.2.so" (8) Party like it's 1999

You get the picture.  Any takers?

Hold the phones.  RQuadling, I followed the steps outlined in http://www.php.net/manual/en/install.unix.php and it seems to be working now (http://voip.t1shopper.com/).  Two more questions:

1. How do I make Apache start automatically on reboot?
2. When I try to start mySQL "# mysql" it generates "ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)"  How do I get mySQL working?

Thanks!

1. see /etc/init.d/apache and chkconfig
2. configure your /etc/my.cnf and /etc/init.d/mysql
