Hi, I recently compiled php 4.3.2 with apache 2.2.9, but it does not seem to detect the php module at startup (does not display any error messages). When i do an ldd -r, I see a bunch of symbol not found messages. I tried using the options mentioned in Bug 17273, but apapche 2.2.9 does not seem to recognize the --enable-shared=max --enable-rule=SHARED_CORE directives. any pointers would be quite helpful. Im also constrained to using php 4.3.2 as i am trying to port over PHP code that dosent seem to display properly on PHP 5.2.1 (I compile PHP 5.2.1 and it loads fine)Is PHP 5.2.1 supposed to be fully backward compatible with code written for PHP 4.3.2. I heard something about differences in pass-by-value vs pass-by-reference:
# ldd -r =>   /lib/ =>       /usr/lib/ =>         /usr/local/lib/ =>  /lib/ =>   /usr/lib/ =>        /lib/ =>     /lib/ =>        /lib/ =>     /lib/ =>    /lib/ =>    /lib/ =>   /lib/ =>  /usr/lib/ =>       /usr/lib/ =>  /lib/ =>         /lib/ =>   /lib/

My configure lines are as follows:
PHP 4.3.2:

Apache 2.2.9 (Original) :
./configure --prefix=/bb/web/apache_2_2_9 --enable-mods-shared=all  --enable-ssl=shared --with-ssl=/opt/OpenSSL -with-apr=/bb/web/apache_2_2_9 -with-apr-util=/bb/web/apache_2_2_9 

Apache 2.2.9 (Modified) :
 ./configure --prefix=/bb/web/apache_2_2_9 --enable-shared=max --enable-rule=SHARED_CORE --enable-mods-share=all  --enable-ssl=shared --with-ssl=/opt/OpenSSL -with-apr=/bb/web/apache_2_2_9 -with-apr-util=/bb/web/apache_2_2_9 

I added the lines to httpd.conf as below:
# PHP Configuration for Apache
# Load the apache module
LoadModule php4_module modules/
# Cause the PHP interpreter handle files with a .php extension.
<Files *.php>
SetOutputFilter PHP
SetInputFilter PHP
LimitRequestBody 9524288
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .php

Expected result:
PHP 4 should load and be able to display php pages 

Actual result:
PHP does not load at apache startup, php pages dont open up

We are sorry, but we can not support PHP 4 related problems anymore.
Momentum is gathering for PHP 6, and we think supporting PHP 4 will
lead to a waste of resources which we want to put into getting PHP 6
