Bug #16791 configure checks for apache 2.X wrong way
Submitted: 2002-04-24 08:23 UTC Modified: 2002-04-25 23:14 UTC
From: erik at slooff dot net Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: Apache related
PHP Version: 4.2.0 OS: SuSE 7.0
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

I was trying to compile php 4.2.0 with apache 1.3.23 on a SuSE 7.0 system using the following configure command:

./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/httpd/bin/apxs --with-gettext --with-xml --with-mysql --with-imap --with-gd --with-zlib

It then gives the error:
error: Use --with-apxs2 with Apache 2.x!
even though apache is version 1.3.23

After looking into the code of configure and commenting out these lines:
# Test that we're trying to configure with apache 1.x
if test -f "$APXS_INCLUDEDIR/ap_mpm.h"; then
{ { echo "$as_me:5006: error: Use --with-apxs2 with Apache 2.x!" >&5
echo "$as_me: error: Use --with-apxs2 with Apache 2.x!" >&2;}
{ (exit 1); exit 1; }; }

"configure", "make" and "make install" ran well without a problem. PHP is now running fine. Is there a mistake in the check the configure script is doing? The file it is checking for is there although I have never had apache 2.X on the system.

A bug?

Are you sure? :)

What does

# /usr/local/httpd/bin/httpd -v

output? And I just checked, there is no such file in 1.3.23 release. ap_mpm.h is ONLY found in apache2.

Also, check what config.log has got about this check.

config.log says:
configure:4916: checking for Apache 1.x module support via DSO through APXS
configure:5006: error: Use --with-apxs2 with Apache 2.x!

/usr/local/httpd/bin/httpd -v
Server version: Apache/1.3.23 (Unix)
Server built:   Feb 10 2002 22:49:42

(BTW this date is before the timestamp of the file ap_mpm.h)

Also even though I cannot recall installing apache 2.X on this system (I may have done so in a previous life..) this does not appear to be a safe way of checking the version of apache...

Fixed in CVS. Fix will be in PHP 4.2.1.
