I started out tonight to install a parallel Apache2 (2.0.48) and PHP5 (5.0.0b4) on the laptop, to complement the existing Apache/PHP4 install. And I thought I would keep notes as I did it, maybe turn it into an extended blog entry, “Man Conquerors Technology” and all that, you know the type. Who knows, if it really got hairy, maybe I could make into an article for O’reilly. My scholarly ambitions were foiled once again; the software was just too damn easy to install
> ./configure --enable-mods-shared=ALL > make > make install
Then tweak the conf file a bit. UserDirs should be set to Sites for example. Probably want to set User/Group to www/www. Also note that Port has been totally superceeded by Listen.
> apt-get install libxml2 > ./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --with-libxml-dir=/sw --prefix=/usr/local/php5 > make > make install
I first had to upgrade my libxml2, which Fink did smoothly. Then configure wasn’t looking in /sw for my libraries, and rather then figure out why I told it explicitly where to find libxml. I installed into the prefix /usr/local/php5 in order not to step on the toes of my PHP4 install. This is especially useful as I’m finding a number of PEAR module need to be patched to run under PHP5, so I need separate PEAR directories for v4 and v5
So now I’ve got Apache/1.3.29 PHP/4.3.4 (entropy) responding on port 80, and Apache/2.0.48 PHP/5.0.0b4 responding on port 81.
Oh, and Magpie works just fine under PHP5.
