I need to put php4 on my server to work with an older site.  I'll get it updated later.

Question: to use php4 as cgi, do I specifically need to compile it as cgi  ( I have instructions, ./configure, make, install (basically)).

Or can I just install it with yum and go from there.

I don't know if those do different things.

Thanks, Chris

Can you tell us, on which platform you intend to install this?

You can download the complete PHP4 package from the PHP site.

I'm putting on CentOS 5.2 LAMP that has php 5 installed.

I know I can get it from the php site, but do I need to 'compile' it for cgi, or... just use the yum install, is there a difference?

I found an rpm that is designed specifically for what I am doing, so I guess I can yum it.  Kinda answered my own question here.

Thank you though for your comment Bembi,

Chris
