    Subject line says it all - I've read numerous posts on this forum telling people to install PHP as a CGI application, but haven't (and even when I searched) come across one that said how, except for NT where CGI is the norm. So, anyone want to enlighten me?

    Quoted from the first few lines of the INSTALL document included within the PHP distribution:

    "For the impatient here is a quick set of steps that will build PHP as
    first a dynamic Apache module (DSO) for Apache 1.3.x with MySQL support
    and then a static module. A more verbose explanation follows. "

    However, unless you have a really good reason for doing so, I would strongly recommend compiling it as a dynamic module.
