Hey Todd.

I'm no guru...but have some familarity with these packages.  i think you
could remove the php rpm with rpm --erase php* and then recompile.  being
from other OS's myself, mainly solaris, i find it easier to build my own,
mainly b/c i know when it works and when it does not.(still a RH newbie)
but you don't have to remove it..  another option is to just install a new
version of PHP in another location.

when you configure PHP, use the two flags you mentioned and PHP *usually*
will modify the apache config file (httpd.conf) during `make install`.  If
it does not you need to make sure that the following lines are in

LoadModule php4_module        libexec/libphp4.so
AddModule mod_php4.c
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

if you have apache in a special location(other then /usr/local) make sure
you give php the full path to apxs (--with-apxs=/path/to/apache/bin/apxs)

You should not need to tell apache where interbase is, only PHP will need
to know.

Hope this helped.

Glenn -

I greatly appreciate the offer to help.  Linux is NOT my usual OS, but I
do have 30 yrs experience (not to impress you, but just to let you know
that I have a pretty good understanding of programming - at least Delphi ).

I just just installed Fedora and there appears to be a problem running
rpm with rpm's created on other versions of Linux, so i may need to put
RH 9 back on and wait.  So, with that out of the way, here is where I
get confused:

1) How to remove the pre-installed version of php with all of the

2) Should I even do that?

3) If I configure the compile with "--with-interbase=/opt/interbase
--with-apxs", what do I need to do to Apache so that it knows where to
get the Interbase information, or do I need to do anything?

4) Though I have PHP and Interbase running on another Linux 9 box, I
lost the paper that told me how to do it.  That install used an
Interbase.so file that someone gave me.

5) Hopefully, you have the patience to get me cleared up on what I need
to do *and* this time I will put the notes in a safe place !!
