access MS SQL databases. I am on a Ubuntu 6.06 version of Linux.

Again, PLEASE keep in mind that I am new to all of this. I tread VERY softly

a backup.)

Am I correct that my first step is to see what is already compiled into my
version of PHP using php -m? I have that list.

I assume that my next step is to get the PHP source for PHP 5.1.4.  From
here on I do not understand clearly by reading the docs I have searched for
on the Internet through Google. Is there a place that has a VERY clear, step
by step process to compile PHP?

The install file in the tarball is pretty good.


./configure --with-all-of-your-options

when that finishes,


when that finishes,

make install

once that's complete, you should just be able to restart your webserver.
