How does one "recompile" PHP under apachefriends for linux.

Postby rmueller1958 » 04. November 2009 20:38

I am in a bit of a pickle,

Have two moodle boxes one running 1.6.8a XAMPP/Linux the new one running 1.7.2 Xampp/Linux.

We have deployed 'Moodle' on both boxes, Moodle is find except for the LIBXML2 parser in the 1.7.2 Works fine in old version, not new one. PHP does have a "bug" fix, is there a way to "download' the latest and greatest libxml2.so and relink it without a full compile of PHP? if NOT how does one go about building a minor revision bugfix to correct the issue.. It is with the PHP version deployed in 1.72.

Yes:

Download and install the "Xampp Development Package" http://www.apachefriends.org/download.p ... 7.2.tar.gz

Download the latest source code of libxml2 (Google for it, I dont know where to get it from)

Compile and install libxml2 module (i.e. running "configure", "make", make install"). Supply appropriate parameters to "configure" (usually "./configure --help" will show basic help).

Restart Apache

I backed down to 1.6.8a on the 2nd box that had 1.7.2 on it. it resolved my issues. Luckily we hadn't gotten to far down the road with the application data.
