This section guides you through the process of building Apache and PHP from source, targeting the Linux platform. You need a respectable ANSI-C compiler and build system, two items that are available through all of the major distributions’ package managers. In addition, PHP requires both Flex (http://flex.sourceforge.net) and Bison (www.gnu.org/software/bison/bison.html), while Apache requires at least Perl version 5.003. Finally, you’ll need root access to the target server to complete the build process.
