What is the configure script? I need to install php

Question:

What is the configure script? I need to install php

Answer:

When you install php, unless you use a binary image, you usually have to do the following
(as with most unix software downloads)

1) run configure
this is a script. You can run it like this:

./configure

2) create the make file with the configuration information that was gathered in step 1)

make

3) run the installation

make install

4) maybe run some tests

make test


These steps are pretty universal, whether you want to install perl, apache, mysql or php
Sometimes steps 3 and 4 are in reverse order.

If you have special requirements, you have to pass them in step 1, as your documentation describes.
