Apache2 and PHP5 and missing apxs file on Fedora Core 3

Posted by Paul Farrow - Under: Mini-ITX, Software

Ok next problem that I bumped into today while trying to install PHP5 on Apache2.  In the php instructions it tells you to use the –with-apxs2 and point that to the apxs file.  Now the standard install of Fedora 3 doesnt install this file for you, so you need to install the httpd-devel package.  This can be done easily using up2date with this command.

up2date httpd-devel

and this will install the apxs file which for should now sit in /usr/sbin

then to configure the php5 issue the command

./configure –with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs –with-mysql

hope that helps
