If you didn't put the '--with-apache' in, PHP compiled itself as a CGI
binary executable. Yes, you'll need to recompile PHP over again.
You may want to take this opportunity to investigate Apache's DSO system
(dynamic shared object). You can recreate a new PHP 'module' for Apache
without having to recompile Apache again in the future. It's apparently
a small performance hit, but I've not been able to notice any sizable
decrease in performance on production servers we work with using the DSO
Hope that helps.
