OK, did that and thank you.
I guess I'd better check to see if this is what I need to do. My server got "upgraded" and killed my custom install of php. I went to the wiki and followed the instructions there to reinstall and it keeps stopping the process. Mind you, this is the only time I've ever used shell (PuTTY)? is to do this. I can code and I can follow instructions. It gets all the way to the c-client section and does this:
I tried it line by line, and it can't find c-client.a or something like that. Neither can I. There's a c-client.h, but no ".a".
So, I figured I'd skip the c-client section and jump to the actual php configuration section. I get a similar drop, so I go into the shell and do individual commands. I use the following configuration:
[tethys]$ ./configure --prefix=/home/mysitename/php5 --with-config-file-path=/home/mysitename/php5/etc/php5/mysitename.com --enable-fastcgi --enable-force-cgi-redirect --with-xml --with-libxml-dir=/home/mysitename/php5 --with-freetype-dir=/home/mysitename/php5 --enable-soap --with-openssl=/usr --with-mhash=/home/mysitename/php5 --with-mcrypt=/home/mysitename/php5 --with-zlib-dir=/home/mysitename/php5 --with-jpeg-dir=/usr --with-png-dir=/usr --with-gd --enable-gd-native-ttf --enable-memory-limit --enable-ftp --enable-exif --enable-sockets --enable-wddx --with-iconv=/home/mysitename/php5 --enable-sqlite-utf8 --enable-calendar --with-curl=/home/mysitename/php5 --enable-mbstring --enable-mbregex --with-mysql=/usr --with-mysqli --without-pear --with-gettext
and I get down to the configuration extension stuff and get....
checking whether to enable LIBXML support... yes
checking libxml2 install dir... /home/mysitename/php5
checking for xml2-config path... /home/mysitename/php5/bin/xml2-config
checking whether libxml build works... yes
checking for OpenSSL support... yes
checking for Kerberos support... no
checking for DSA_get_default_method in -lssl... no
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
configure: error: Cannot find OpenSSL's
I've been working on this since the darned server got upgraded and I've put about 15 hours into it. I'm spent.
So, what I am now trying to do is get a working version of php somewhere that I can use it with "enable soap" and "enable openssl". I think those are the two things I need that are different than the standard install from Dreamhost.
Am i on the right path here?
If so, now what do I do with that "bash" to get my site to work?
Thanks for any help.
