View Full Version : PHP5 From Source

April 13th, 2006, 11:53 PM
A while ago I followed the guide on the wiki (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PHP5FromSource?highlight=%28php5%29) for compiling php5 from source and it has worked very well. However, I have now decided that I would like to update from PHP 5.0.4 to a newer version (5.1.2) and in the time since I last compiled it circumstances have changed - I now require in addition to my previous configuration the imap module and the PostgreSQL module.

Since I am not all that used to using make could someone please tell me what I would need to do to remove the current version of PHP (a make uninstall?) and what I need to install to get the dependencies for the imap and PostgreSQL modules (what I need to apt-get in other words). It should be noted that I do not actually have PostgreSQL installed on my server - but instead have it on a dedicated server and so am not sure if that changes anything.

Thanks for all of your help that you can provide.
