Well, after hours of experimentation and thanks *very*, nay __extremely__ much to the many people on this list, I finally realized that the default on php4 (and php5) does NOT set up php to work with apache. I took in for granted that php and apache worked hand-in-glove. Nope. Matthew Seaman had me bring up the blue frame and select the appropriate [X]. I looked at the Makefiles and edited the "off" to "on". After my 90-11th build, things worked. Both on "sage" (aka ns1) and on zen and here on tao.thought.org. Live 'n' learn; and this time, the lesson is burned into my neurons:-) gary > > -- > Some people have a "gift" link here. > Know what I want? > I want you to buy a CD from some starving artist. > http://cdbaby.com/browse/from/lynch > Yeah, I get a buck.
