Compiling PHP v1.0.8

Today Rasmus posted on twitter that he just compiled PHP v 1.0.8. And it actually worked. Is that great? :) He was in need of this for his upcoming talk this week in Paris. But i couldn’t resist and try to compile this ancient piece of work ;)

$ wget $ tar xfvz php-108.tar.gz $ cd php

If you need to change any config setting do it now. And hit make!

$ vi config.h $ make

This creates a few .cgi files. So it actually does still build

phpf.cgi phpl.cgi phplmon.cgi phplview.cgi

Let’s copy that to my cgi-bin and run it through Apache.
