Introduction to PHP

PHP is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML.

Project Homepage: http://www.php.net/

Warning:

The PHP Developer team means:

"We do not recommend using a threaded MPM in production with Apache2. Use the prefork MPM instead, or use Apache1. For information on why, read the related FAQ entry on using Apache2 with a threaded MPM"[1]"

Dependencies

Required

Optional

Configuration Information

See the output of ./configure --help for many more configuration options.

If you use Apache 1 then you must use --with-apxs instead --with-apxs2

If you want use Libmcrypt then you must add --with-mcrypt to the configure script

Note

PHP does not use DESTDIR, it uses INSTALL_ROOT for the same purpose. Use INSTALL_ROOT as you would normally use DESTDIR. There are some errors that are safe to ignore. It also will fail if it does not find a valid httpd.conf in the < DIRECTORY >etc/apache folder. one way to fix this is

install -d <DIRECTORY>/etc/apache && cp /etc/apache/httpd.conf <DIRECTOR>/etc/apache/

or figure out a way to fake the httpd.conf. remember to deal with the new data in httpd.conf with your installer

Note

There are some reproducable problems with PHP on both x86 and x86_64 architecture when compiling with GCC4 and -O3 optimization (see for example http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=211611, there are more).

Non-Multilib

Compile the package:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/php \
    --libdir=/usr/lib --localstatedir=/var \
    --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-mysql \
    --with-layout=GNU &&
make

Install the package:

make install
cp php.ini-production /etc/php/php.ini

The install script changes your Apache configuration and adds the entry: "LoadModule php5_module lib/apache/libphp5.so". But it forgets to set the mime application type. Open /etc/apache/httpd.conf and add following line in the <IfModule mime_module> section:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml .php3 .htm .html

When you want start a site with php-code, you must add:

<IfModule dir_module>
   DirectoryIndex index.html index.php index.php3 index.htm
</IfModule>

To test your PHP installation, try this:

cat > /srv/www/htdocs/phptest.php << "EOF"

 
 PHP-Testpage
 
 
 
  
 
EOF
/etc/rc.d/init.d/apache restart
lynx localhost/phptest.php

Multilib

32Bit

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD32}" PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATH32}" USE_ARCH=32 \
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/php --libdir=/usr/lib \
    --localstatedir=/var --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-mysql \
    --with-layout=GNU &&
make

Install the package:

make install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/php-config{,-32} &&
cp php.ini-production /etc/php/php.ini

The installscript change your Apache config and add the entry: "LoadModule php5_module lib/apache/libphp5.so" But it forgets to set the mime applicationtype. So go to the /etc/apache/httpd.conf and add following line in the <IfModule mime_module> section:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml .php3 .htm .html

When you want start a site with php-code, you must add:

IfModule dir_module>
   DirectoryIndex index.html index.php index.php3 index.htm
</IfModule>


If you also choose to build a 64Bit PHP, you must:

rm -f /etc/php/pear.conf

64Bit

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD64}" PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATH64}" USE_ARCH=64 MYSQL_LIB_DIR=/usr/lib64 \
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/php \
    --libdir=/usr/lib64 --localstatedir=/var \
    --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-mysql \
    --with-layout=GNU &&
make

Install the package:

make install
mv -v /usr/bin/php-config{,-64}
ln -sfv multiarch_wrapper /usr/bin/php-config
cp php.ini-production /etc/php/php.ini

The installscript change your Apache config and add the entry: "LoadModule php5_module lib64/apache/libphp5.so" But it forgets to set the mime applicationtype. So go to the /etc/apache/httpd.conf and add the following line in the <IfModule mime_module> section:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml .php3 .htm .html

When you want start a site with php-code, you must add:

<IfModule dir_module>
   DirectoryIndex index.html index.php index.php3 index.htm
</IfModule>

Note

If you have a 32bit Apache then make sure you have the following in httpd.conf:
LoadModule php5_module   lib/apache/libphp5.so

If you have a 64bit Apache then make sure you have the following in httpd.conf:

LoadModule php5_module   lib64/apache/libphp5.so
