I am currently upgrading my PHP on my unmanaged VPS. From PHP4 to PHP 5. I have been following the following website tutorial at nix101.com/2007/09/22/setting-up-a-secure-and-fast-php-build-for-litespeed/ on how to do it for the litespeed server of which I have got installed.
But now I have come to the stage where it says Make, Make Install. And I keep on getting the following error messages coming up
Make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
Make Install: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.
I have got running on it Centos 4 and I have just installed Yum to see if that sorts out the problem. But it don't.
So any suggestions on how to sort out the make, and make install so that I can finish configing PHP.
If I did that, and later on if I need to install other stuff that I needs to compile. Would I still get the same problem with make and make install with it?
If it's not working with the PHP stuff?
If you were thinking about the php extensions they are available in binary format from the same repository. If you need to compile a new version of an extension (for example) you can use the php source available as rpms.
If you still want to compile php I think it's still easier to use the rpms to do it.
