Installing own version of PHP

software development

#1

I need to install my own version of PHP in my home directory in order to get the proper configuration I require. A tech from Dreamhost told me this was allowed. My problem is I don’t know the specific details about how to install PHP in my home directory. Can anyone give me advice or links to literature that will help me with this?

As luck would have it, the DreamHost Wiki has lots of information about PHP, including installation of PHP 4 or PHP 5.

I did my own install of PHP 4 last week and it was pretty easy, but did take a little time for the compile script to fully execute.

Good luck!
