Hi all,I'm in the midst of setting up my production server, which will be running on a fully chrooted non-root LAMP configuration. Due to my high demands for performance and security, I've been advised by several resources on the net to statically link PHP into Apache. However, all information I could find seems to pertain to very old Apache 1.3.x configurations, which are no longer compatible with the current configure scripts.
In the past few days, I've tried my best to build a libphp5.a static library using various configure arguments, but to no avail. I'm starting to wonder if it's at all possible to statically link PHP 5.2.x into httpd 2.2.x! Some information about my build system: httpd 2.2.13, PHP 5.2.11, gcc 4.1.2, binutils 2.18 on CentOS 5.2. My last unsuccessful ./configure line reads as follows: "./configure --prefix=/chroot/apache2/php --with-iconv=/usr/local --enable-static"
Any insights would be greatly appreciated. Bye, Ro
