Tested in Hoary.


You must download PHP5 (of course ;)

tar jxf php-5.0.4.tar.bz2
cd php-5.0.4/

You must install packages :

sudo apt-get install make g++ flex bison build-essential zlib1g-dev

You must have a webserver :

(apache2-prefork is better because it is thread safe)

sudo apt-get install apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-prefork-dev

(you can install with apache2-mpm-worker, but you need to delete the --with-tsrm-pthreads)

(you also can install Apache 1 (no problem with thread there)

You need a Mysql Database I Think :

(not necessary, but recommended)

Choose between 4.0 and 4.1

Mysql 4.0

sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient12-dev mysql-server


Mysql 4.1

sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient14-dev mysql-server-4.1

You need development libraries

We will install PHP with a lot of options (mcrypt, mhash, bz2, xml, tidy...)

sudo apt-get install libmcrypt-dev libmhash-dev libxslt1-dev libtidy-dev libbz2-dev libxml2-dev libssl-dev

If you install GD (it is in my configuration below)

sudo apt-get install libpng12-dev libjpeg62-dev libxpm-dev libfreetype6-dev freetype2 freetype2-dev

Enable the multiverse repository to have the msttcorefonts (Useful for TrueType fonts with GD). The symbolic links is to Jpgraph to work without changing the configuration.

sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts
ln -sfn /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/ /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/truetype

Compilation optimisation

You can speed up PHP with processor optimisation (optional)

If you have a different processor, change the CHOST, CFLAGS, CXXFLAGS.

If you don't know what it is, this 3 lines are optional, so don't do it !

  • Athlon-tbird XP (AMD)

export CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
export CFLAGS="-march=athlon-xp -O3 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -msse -mmmx  -mfpmath=sse"
export CXXFLAGS="-march=athlon-xp -O3 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -msse -mmmx  -mfpmath=sse"
  • Pentium 4 (Intel)

export CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
export CFLAGS="-march=pentium4 -mcpu=pentium4 -O3 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -msse -mmmx  -mfpmath=sse"
export CXXFLAGS="-march=pentium4 -mcpu=pentium4 -O3 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -msse -mmmx  -mfpmath=sse"


This is a full configuration.

Do it in the PHP5 folder.

You can add/delete some of the options if you don't need it.

It is a strict PHP (no short tags, safe mode, no magic quotes etc...), but you can change it if you prefer or if some scripts doesn't work.

If you use Apache 1, change the --with-apxs2=/usr/bin/apxs2 with --with-apxs=/usr/bin/apxs

If you have only Mysql 4.0, delete the --with-mysqli=/usr/bin/mysql_config It is only with Mysql 4.1 !

The installation had automatically add PHP5 module to Apache Configuration


sudo echo "<?php phpinfo(); ?>" > /var/www/phpinfo.php
mozilla-firefox http://localhost/phpinfo.php

These are the messages I get when I run the configuration script. It comes up after the PHP license box so I have been unable to finish the installation Sad :(

rm: cannot remove `.libs/': Permission denied rm: cannot remove `.libs/': Permission denied rm: cannot remove `.libs/libphp5.lai': Permission denied rm: cannot remove `.libs/': Permission denied rm: cannot remove `.libs/': Permission denied rm: cannot remove `.libs/libphp5.lai': Permission denied rm: cannot remove `.libs/': Permission denied /usr/bin/ld: cannot open output file .libs/ Permission denied collect2: ld returned 1 exit status make: *** [] Error 1

I also typed in http://localhost and it brings up a directory on-screen by the name of "apache2-default" and I am unable to use the lines from the testing section as when I try to create the file as mentioned in the first line I get the error message

"bash: /var/www/phpinfo.php: Permission denied".

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

The installation does not work to me.

when executing make, it happens the following error:

user@ubuntu:/php-5.0.4$ make -s php-5.0.4/ext/sqlite/libsqlite/src/parse.y:19.1-13: directiva no válida: `%token_prefix' php-5.0.4/ext/sqlite/libsqlite/src/parse.y:19.15-17: syntax error, unexpected "identifier" make: *** [php-5.0.4/ext/sqlite/libsqlite/src/parse.c] Error 1
