'''Note:''' There are currently three PHP5 pages on the wiki, this one, ["PHP5Installation"] and ["PHP5Installation2"]. If you're able to edit them down to just one page, please do! Remember to add redirects from the two pages you black, though - don't just delete those pages.

PHP4 does not require any special assembly or compiling; see ["ApacheMySQLPHP"] for PHP4 instructions.

Tested in Hoary and Breezy.

== Prerequisites ==

=== 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"

== Configuration ==
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 !

You should point {{{--with-mysql}}} to the base directory of your mysql and {{{--with-mysqli}}} to the {{{mysql_config}}} file. Keep this in mind especially when you install php with support to a Mysql that you compilled yourself.

./configure \
--quiet \
--disable-cli \
--disable-cgi \
--disable-all \
--disable-rpath \
--disable-debug \
--disable-path-info-check \
--disable-magic-quotes \

--enable-session \
--enable-simplexml \


If you want to use both the old mysql and the new mysqli interface, load the Makefile into your editor and search for the line beginning with EXTRA_LIBS; it includes -lmysqlclient twice; remove the second instance. Do this before running the 'make' command or you'll get compilation errors.

make -s \
&& sudo make install \
&& sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 stop \
&& sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 start

The installation had automatically add PHP5 module to Apache Configuration

=== Testing ===
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 :(

rm: cannot remove `.libs/': Permission denied
rm: cannot remove `.libs/': Permission denied
rm: cannot remove `.libs/libphp5.lai': 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.
