im not sure if this is the right forum or even right site to ask this but:
i know that php 5 no longer supports the mysql commands by default but i can't get the extension for the commands to work. i've read and done what the FAQ says on the php site but nothing works. obviously im doing something wrong so if someone could post a link or a walkthrough of exactly what needs to be done and where i'd realy appreciate it.
7. extract the archive using
tar -zxf php-5.1.6.tar.gz
8. enter the extracted archive’s directory
9. copy your ‘phpcompile’ file into this directory, make it executable, configure, compile, and then install:
chmod 700 phpcompile
make clean (if you have previously attempted to compile)
If the configure command fails, it is likely that you’ve misplaced a library - it might be necessary to specify where the ‘absent’ library is located in this case. If in contrast no errors occur, after the make install command completes, restart Apache, and check your phpinfo page for the appropriate version change.
