PHP - Adding more than buildapache offers?

Can anyone share how one might enable additional modules/program for use with php manually using buildapache.sea? I was reading through an old post on how to do it, but I believe the file structure of the build has been changed slightly and I don't want to mess up the build at all by editing the wrong file.

Anyone? I don't like bumping threads, but I need to know how to do this without killing something in the process. Just have to add in an extra --with-something to the php compile. Looked through the previous instructions, but with the current file structure for the buildapache directory, the file said to be edited doesn't seem to be the one to edit anymore.

What we do is build whatever it is we're adding (pdflib, for instance), then drill down into the php-4.x.x folder:

rm config.cache -f
make clean

Then

./configure (--with-options)
make
make install

Restart apache.
Done.

Hi,
When I try to do the above i get an error:
php-4.3.1/ext/mysql/libmysql/my_tempnam.c:103: the use of `tempnam' is dangerous, better use `mkstemp'

I looked into that problem, changed the --with-mysql to --with-mysql=/usr and it creates apache problems.

I'm back to square one. Luckily I backed up libphp4.so and also /scripts/easyapache has no problem recompilionh php. Btw easyapache does configure php with only --with-mysql

All I want to do is add pdflib.
Anyone has the same issue?

TIA

Had the same problem, Annette helped me with that.

You received that at the very end of the make? Ignore it. It's a warning only and does not affect make install.
So, stick to --with-mysql and just run 'make install' after that warning.

Done that, It crashed apache causing cpanel sending me emails until i ran /scripts/easyapache.

I tried the php source in buildapache and also downloaded it to a different locationsso I could always resort to easyapache.

The odd thing is that easyapache has no problem compiling it, it only has this problem doing it manually.

PHP folks know about this:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/faq.build.php#faq.build.mysql.tempnam

They say its a warning and everything should work fine. It does not work for me.

All I want to do is have pdflib.
Thanks
