I've searched the previous bug reports, but none describes the exact problem I'm getting, nor supplied any solution I could apply succesfully.

These are the steps I've followed (all on a clean server - previous versions of Apache and PHP were removed):

[1] Apache 2.0.36 was configured with the following parameters:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache --enable-so --enable-mods-shared=all

The subsequent make and make install worked just fine, and Apache started up without problems.

[2] PHP was then configured with the following:

./configure --with-apxs2=/path-to-apxs --prefix=/usr/local/apache 

All other settings were removed in an attempt to isolate the problem.

The subsequent make resulted in the following warning:

*** Warning: inter-library dependencies are not known to be supported.
*** All declared inter-library dependencies are being dropped.
*** The inter-library dependencies that have been dropped here will be
*** automatically added whenever a program is linked with this library
*** or is declared to -dlopen it.

Doing a "make install" works - the file is copied to the correct location and the httpd.conf file is modified correctly.

But Apache won't start:

Starting httpd: Syntax error on line 263 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
Cannot load /usr/local/apache/modules/ into server: /usr/local/apache/modules/ undefined symbol: __dn_expand

Please suggest alternative ./configure parameters, since it appears as if PHP 4 and Apache are not yet usable on the same server.

My last comment is slightly incorrect - it should read as follows:

Please suggest alternative ./configure parameters, since it appears as if PHP 4 and Apache 2 are not yet usable on the same server.

OK, the latest CVS snapshot (dated 2002/06/06) from works like a charm!
