There are broken links in the Romanian php manual. At the installation chapter, "How to install on Unix/HP-UX". All the urls in there are missing. I get a 404 every time.

The documentation itself needs an update, the file in question:

A few points:
a) The documentation was written for PHP 4.0.4 so maybe
   it's outdated?  It at least looks outdated.
b) It's time we move it from email format to doc format
c) The links themselves are dead and should be presented 
   in a more "flexible" way.  Instead of linking to specific
   versions, how about refer to the needed libraries plus
   a generic link, such as:

So until someone knows (not guesses) the answer to (a), implements (b), and (c), this report should remain open.

I have installed PHP 4.x and 5.x on HP-UX 10.xx and 11.xx.

a) The documentation *is* outdated and even wrong (e. g., you *can* build PHP as a shared module on HP-UX). The reference to an unspecified "Apache page" is misleading even.

b) No, take it out completely. Having nothing about HP-UX is better than that stuff.

c) is therefor irrelevant.

wk at mailstation dot de, can you please write some notes for current version or at least point us to sources you used? Everlasting honor will be yours :-).

I believe the "best" method for installing PHP (and Apache) is to go here:

And install one of the found packages. Searching for PHP yields several packages, for example:

HP-UX Apache-based Web Server v.2.11 powered by Apache, Tomcat, Webmin

We should most likely remove all current documentation and simply mention how to install one of these packages. Well, at least until someone who knows HP-UX can add additional information.

Yes, The HPWS package from HP is a solution, but I wanted to compile the package by myself because I have several Unix flavors to manage and I want them to have the same software versions, and to be able to regenerate it when I want, instead of waiting for HP.

Another reason is that I have tried to get some help from HP, in order to know how they compile their package, and it has proved to be absolutely impossible to get any information. I don't like this kind of behavior. As I discovered later when doing it by myself, because of problems related to the HP-UX OS itself, they practically force most users to depend on their package. It is not my view of Open SOurce philosophy. As most of these big companies, they like to take, but not to give...

So, I sent several days compiling a full Apache 2.0 + PHP 5.1.2 package, including every libraries they depend on. This package also includes most Apache modules and PHP extensions (zlib, SSL, LDAP, iconv, expat, xml, xslt, gd, png, Xpm, jpeg, freetype, bzip2, curl, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, AdoDB).

I have also written a complete howto document, describing how to build everything from scratch, from the place to get the source packages, to the way to check that everything works OK. This document is available at :

I am ready to write a 1 or 2 page resume of the document for the PHP documentation page (the full document is about 13 page long), with a link to the full document, for instance.

Tell me what you think about it.

Patch, diffed against the current xml-file are very welcome.
Generic, uptodate, install instructions for HP UX is valuable for the manual.

It would be great, please provide a nice summary and we'll link to the full tutorial. Are you still interested in doing this? A plain text file would be fine too, I'll convert it into DocBook form.

I removed the old HP-AUX install information and linked to your installation tutorial on the subject. It would be most appreciated if you provide a one page "quick guide" summary to include within the manual source.
