Very well written and easy to follow. A newbe like me had no problems. Well, exept this line
[benlev:~/php-4.3.0] adam% make

It took me a bit of time to find out that it should be that
[benlev:~/php-4.3.0] adam% sudo make
after that it went fine.

I found in my Library file a folder "PHP4", now I am not sure if I can remove this one or not. So where is PHP 4.3.0 stored. Does it show up in any Library listing?

If I do not need this "PHP4" folder I like to trash it.

thank for the good instructions.

    Hi Jens!

    I don't have a folder named "PHP4" in my Library, so I think you can probably delete this. The new version of PHP, 4.3.0, should be located in two places. The Apache module version is (most likely) in /usr/libexec/httpd/libphp4.so, while the command line version is at /usr/bin/php.

    Whether you need to run "make" or "sudo make" depends upon the permission settings of your files and what username you're using when you run this command. For my setup, "make" is enough; for others, I guess, you need to use "sudo." Nice catch!
