Installing an extension for PHP


#1

Hi, i really want to install html tidy http://tidy.sourceforge.net for one of my sites. I have followed the instructions from http://discussion.dreamhost.com/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=forum_troubleshooting&Number=51748&page=4&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=14&part= and http://www.php.net/tidy but neither work. Therefore i contacted the support crew and they responded by saying:

“I am terribly sorry but we do not support this kind of setup.
Unfortunately you are on your own when it comes to setting this up.
Basically you need to compile your own version of PHP with the
–with-tidy paramater.”

I followed the instructions on http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Installing_PHP5

but when i ran the script i got --with-tidy: command not found. Really appreciate if someone could guide me through how to get this done as it’s not something i’m too familar with.

Thanks
