Building PHP 5 on Solaris 10

This is an article I meant to publish a long time ago. I was going through my blog posts, and noticed this entry as a draft from four years ago. I thought it may still be relevant to some folks and decided to publish it. There may be circumstances which require native PHP. This is how I did it using the native version.

Note: Today I would recommend using Quercus on GlassFish 3 instead of using pure PHP.  Please see Quercus PHP 3.2.1 on GlassFish 2.1 as an example of how to implement it.

1. Set the path as follows:

export PATH=/opt/csw/bin:/usr/sfw/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin: \
/usr/openwin/bin:/usr/dt/bin:/usr/ccs/bin


2. Install the following packages from blastwave.org

pkg-get -U
pkg-get -i autoconf
pkg-get -i automake
pkg-get -i gsed
pkg-get -i libxml2


2. Check software revision levels

4. Use the following build script

./configure \
--enable-so \
--with-apxs2=/usr/apache2/bin/apxs \
--enable-fastcgi \
--enable-debug \
--with-zlib \
--with-bz2 \
--enable-calendar \
--enable-dba=shared \
--with-flatfile \
--enable-dbase \
--enable-ftp \
--with-openssl \
--with-ldap \
--with-ldap-sasl \
--enable-soap \
--with-oci8=/opt/oracle/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1 \
--with-libxml-dir=/opt/csw \
--enable-mbstring \
--with-mycrpt

5. Run make all

6. Run make install
