Apache, php4, FreeBSD

How do I install Apache and php4 on FreeBSD? by Wishdiak
Posted: 6 May 05

Installing Apache and php4 on FreeBSD (5.x) is relatively painless, if you use the FreeBSD ports system. After logging in as root:

1. Install Apache (1.3 in this example) from FreeBSD ports.
#cd /usr/ports/www/apache13
#make install clean

2. Add Apache to rc.conf so that it starts at boot.
#echo 'apache_enable="YES"' > /etc/rc.conf

3. Install php4 and extensions from FreeBSD ports.
#cd /usr/ports/www/mod_php4
#make install clean
#cd /usr/ports/lang/php4-extensions
#make install distclean

4. Check to see that Apache is configured for php4.
#cd /usr/local/etc/apache
#more httpd.conf

The following lines in httpd.conf should be UNcommented:
  LoadModule php4_module     libexec/apache/libphp4.so
  AddModule mod_php4.c
  <IfModule mod_dir.c>
     DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.htm

5. Restart Apache.
#apachectl restart
