okay i've tried every installation procedule possible from various tutorials but nothing seems to work.. did the static installtion, tried various versions of php, apache, etc..
I have mysql installed correctly and have redhat 6.1 running kernel 2.2.16.
Here are the steps that I run to install php with apache:
1.) install mysql
2.) install apache with config:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache --datadir=/home/httpd --logfiledir=/var/log/httpd --enable-module=most --enable-shared=max --disable-rule=WANTHSREGEX
3.) install php with config:
./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs --with-config-file-path=/usr/local/apache --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --with-system-regex
so far so good.. no error messages
4.) ran cp php.ini-dist /usr/local/etc/php4.ini (and various other locations to make sure it wasnt this problem)
5.) editted httpd.conf to have LoadModule php4_module libexec/libphp4.so and AddModule mod_php4.c and
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
(weird thing is the loadmodule and addmodule were already uncommented)...
6.) ./apachectl graceful
here is where the error message:
./apachectl graceful: httpd not running, trying to start
Syntax error on line 238 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
Cannot load /usr/local/apache/libexec/libphp4.so into server: /usr/local/apache/libexec/libphp4.so: undefined symbol: uncompress
./apachectl graceful: httpd could not be started
Any help would be much appreciated. THank you

You should then cp your php.ini-dist to /usr/local/apache/php4.ini
According to "configure" script:
Sets the path in which to look for php.ini.
defaults to /usr/local/lib"
Have you read http://www.devshed.com/Talk/Forums/F...ML/000020.html ?

I've had the same problem a couple of times, and I found that on occasion with the 'apxs' install, stopping and restarting apache is not enough. When I rebooted the system completely, httpd started fine. (...for what it's worth)
Also, I notice the error message mentions "undefinded symbol: uncompress". I could be off base on this, but it might be worth checking to see what version of zlib (compression library) is on your system. You should have a file called zlib.h in /usr/include or /usr/local/include. Open it and see if the comments mention whether it is older than version 1.0.9. I am not at all sure whether PHP automatically searches for zlib on install, but you can manually force it. My install used the following:
unpack zlib-1.1.3, ./configure --shared
make, make install
add --with-zlib-dir=shared to your PHP ./configure directives

I am having exactly the same problem as described above with exactly the same error message, which is:
Cannot load /usr/local/apache/libexec/libphp4.so into server:
undefined symbol: uncompress
I have been at loss over this problem and doing everything specified in
has still not solved my problem. I also did the --with-zlib=pth/to/zlib as suggested, but to no avail (i did not do the uncompress zlib bit or the --shared / --with-zlib=shared though, as it launched the KFM program, which i assume has somthing to do with KDE, and kept giving weird error messages).
Another thing is that there was no ClearModuleList section in httpd.conf file, so i didn't uncomment/add AddModule mod_php4.c
Sinilarly, there were no AddTypes in the file so i added "application/x-httpd-php .php4 .php" in the mime.conf file instead - don't know if that was right.
I am at loss over the problem and have spent over a week now trying to get php4/apache1.1.13/mysql to work together. Is it smthing easy I am doing wrong ???????
any help greatly appreciated.......
