Apparently some developers still require PHP4 on their web servers. The previous method for doing so on Fedora Core 4 (FC4) was to use the FC3 RPM’s. (A formal procedure was provided by the guide: PHP4 on FC4.)
Since the release of FC5, the dependancies and outdated linking from the FC3 RPM packages may be difficult to resolve. It is recommended to recompile the PHP4 SRC.RPM and link it to the running software provided in FC5. However, there are some needed changes to the SRC.RPM. There is a modified source RPM package provided on the following guide:
Steps provided should work for FC5 as well as FC4. There are some precompiled binary RPM’s provided as well.
These have only been tested by myself. I would appreciate it if anyone can report as to how well these work!
