last updated 5/15/01 by

Here's what I did:
-Download the latest Apache source
-Download the latest PHP source
-Download the latest ming library source
-Download the latest OpenSSL source
-Download the latest mod_ssl source
-Download the latest mm source
-Download the latest mcrypt and libmcrypt source
-Download the latest mhash source
-Download the latest mod_frontpage source
-Download the latest mod_dav source
-Download the latest mod_gzip source
Now put all of that crap in one directory and untar it
-Patch the Apache source with the patch included in the mod_frontpage
tarball. If you haven't already installed the frontpage executables, do
that as well. Make sure that they are in /usr/local/frontpage and owned
by the user and group bin
-Next compile/install OpenSSL. Remember for OpenSSL to use -fPIC as one of
your configure options.
-Compile/install mod_SSL. This will first require you to compile/install
the mm libraries. Use --disable-shared as your
configure options to mm. Use --with-apache=../apache_1.3.x
as your configure options for mod_SSL.
-Now you should go ahead and compile/install mhash and mcrypt. Be sure to
run ldconfig when you're done or PHP won't find the
-Next, compile/install apache. Remember to back up the old directory
just in case. Here's what I ran to configure it.
Don't forget to do make certificate TYPE=custom before you do a
make install so that you'll have the certificates for the SSL
-Next compile/install PHP. I configured it with:
-Next compile the ming library as a shared PHP module. Be sure to edit
php.ini so that it loads the exention and knows where to find it.
-Next compile mod_gzip and mod_dav
This step is very straight forward, just look at their README's.
And thats it...as always I probably left something out so
read the README's that come with the packages.
