Installing php4.2.2 on two identically configured Linux 7.2 servers. Both php compilations crash at the same point with same error.

Configuration line is:

./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apachestronghold/bin/apxs --with-oci=/usr/local/oracle/OraHome1

configure program crashes saying:

Configuring SAPI modules
checking for AOLserver support... no
checking for Apache 1.x module support via DSO through APXS... configure: error: Use --with-apxs2 with Apache 2.x!


Stronghold 3 definitely running Apache 1.3.22 see

If I use --with-apxs2 like it suggests, which I know is wrong, the installation fails when running make (not a surprise)

Got snapshot php4-STABLE-200207281200.tar.gz and the 
problem still exists in that.

I have tried old version php-4.1.2 and that is fine on the 
server. Something is still broken --with-apxs in the php4-
STABLE-200207281200 snapshot. 

Thanks for speedy reply.

php4-STABLE-latest.tar.gz is the same as php4-STABLE-
200207281200.tar.gz (for now!) so problem definitely still

Hmm..I really think it's fixed..can you try this snapshot:

(it's 4.3.0-dev, the fix might not have been merged to the stable branch)

 [2002-07-28 20:22 UTC] thought at phenomind dot com
Yep. It is fixed in that. I need this for production 
servers so I'll wait until it goes stable first.

Thanks ever so much for your help. You guys do a great
