hai bavitra i have read the article from this site http://www.web-tech-india.com/articles/php/compiling_php_apache/ but actually the thing is it is not working for me..
it is giving me some error like this checking for gcc ---no checking for cc--no configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH.. this tells me that the i am missing the cross compiler from my machine but i dont have an idea from where can i get this..
