Subject PHP compiling help for firebird
Author Peter Chaisty

I have a working PHP4, apache on fedora core 3 and I would like to add
support for firebird 1.5x

I see from reading through the posts that I will have to recompile php
with --with-interbase=/usr/local/firebird

I have a few issues

PHP4 was originally installed from rpms and has sql,apache support
built in etc which I need to retain
How do I recompile my PHP in this scenario ?
I could download PHP 5 and compile that but do I need to remove PHP 4
first ?

Is there another way to add support without recompiling ?

Thanks in advance
