How to compile a new PHP version in XAMPP [Answered]

Postby Tarsier » 17. February 2012 02:51

Hi,

I am using CentOS (Amazon Linux) and XAMPP 1.7.7 and would like to compile a new version of PHP. The reason is I would like like to add the HTML Tidy library extension and the Suhosin security patch. I've downloaded the 5.3.10 version of PHP and the Development version of XAMPP.

Thanks.

JonB: Thanks for your response. It looks like I just may have to install the AMP components separately to be able to compile PHP :-(

That is pretty much the case.

XAMPP is intended to be 'it works as it is', and recompiling and fixing is a bigger task that installing standalone nowadays.

You do know that PHP 5.3.10 is part of the current Beta LAMPP, right??
