Reconfiguring PHP?

Postby abc » Tue Apr 19, 2011 6:37 am

Hello, I have PHP 4 (+apache 1.3 and MySQL4 - I know, outdated) installed on my Debian server. Unfortunately, I did not install it and I am very inexperienced with configuring PHP. What I need is to reconfigure it with LDAP installed. On it states:

LDAP support in PHP is not enabled by default. You will need to use the --with-ldap[=DIR] configuration option when compiling PHP to enable LDAP support.

Seems pretty straightforward, but PHP is already would I go about reconfiguring it with this option enabled, and without messing anything existing up? Thanks.

I think debian (*cough*) has the apget feature, to where you can just install it on top of the installation that is already there.

May have to do a little research to find out, but that should get you started in the right direction.

Download the tar file, and place it in your webtree. For the purposes of this tutorial, my wiki will sit in the root directory of the server. Extract the file:

tar -zxvf phpwiki-1.3.12p1.tar.gz

Renaming the directory from phpwiki-1.3.12 to simply phpwiki, or even just wiki.

mv phpwiki-1.3.12p1 wiki

You can now access your wiki from a browser: Before you can do any editing, you'll first have to configure everything.
