I decided to install php from source. I have installed the core modules only. Is that possible to install additional modules ?such as, gd, ming bcmath etc?after installing php core modules without compiling the entire source code?
Please don't reply to someone elses thread with something new. Hijacking threads is frowned upon and makes things hard to follow.
You have to compile against the same source code as the base (ie it has to be the same version, you can't compile the core as 5.2.4 and the new version as 5.2.6). Whether that compiles the whole lot again depends on what you're adding and whether the original compiled version was kept or not. gcc ignores the bits it doesn't need to do again if it'll turn out exactly the same.
