I am trying to install PHP3.0.16 ......during my installation process i ran through a bit of confusion. I have the tarred version of PHP extracted to my PHP3 dir. I tried to play safe and therefore checked up man pages and webmonkey site for installation procedures.
This is what i found on the Webmonkey site regarding install.
"........, let's get to Unix. Of
course, we'll be compiling from source code. As with MySQL,
download and unpack the source code. Again, PHP comes with a
configure script. You can't get away with going for defaults here,
though. Run ./configure -help | more to see pages and pages of new
and interesting options. You have to decide between compiling as a
CGI or as an Apache module. If you are using the Apache Web server
and you are able to recompile it, use the module: It's faster and
easier to use. Otherwise, you can go with the CGI version. We also
need to compile in MySQL support.
For now we'll assume that we're running the module with MySQL
support. If you want to add other options or other libraries, you
can do this later. Type:
Skip the -with-apache option if you're creating a CGI version. The
configure process will run and produce the relevant system files.
Now simply type make again."
After reading this help file i fugured out that PHP would require MySQL and Apache support. MySQL is installed fine on my comp. My question is is Apache required.? Also if Apache does get installed with that above ./configure .... statementis it possible to remove it afterwards if i want it for a CGI version.
