Subject Installing PHP-Firebird
Author ian

Is anyone else running Suse Linux 9.0 with Firebird(CS rc7) and php4?

I downloaded php4 4.3.4
then after untaring
FROM php-4.3.4/
added #define ISC_FAR to ext/interbase/php_interbase.h
%export LIBS="-lstdc++ -lcrypt"
%./configure --with-interbase=shared,/opt/firebird
%mv modules/ /usr/share/extensions/no-debug*/
then I add to /etc/php.ini
%rcapache restart

Apache does not restart it just stops and then "starts" only to die
%ps -aux shows no apache process running and I cannot connect to the machine
from a browser
%cat /var/log/httpd/error_log
returns nothing except for reporting that the server had been restarted(when
it was still working)

NOTE: I can connect to a database using firebird and it is running
Without adding the apache starts and restarts fine,
php also works.

Should I just install a whole new apache and php from the downloaded source,
or even better if you are running suse or any other linux distro how did you
install php with firebird?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
