I compiled PHP into Apache(version 1.3.37) using apxs, if I need to recompile PHP (to add some more libraries) do I need to re-compile Apache as well?

1.37? 1.3.7? 1.3.37? ... Wait, why are you even still running httpd 1.3? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 13 '10 at 12:06
Sorry, lazy typing. I'm am using 1.3.37 - the reason is because I also use Mason, which doesn't support Apache 2 – Rooneyl Oct 13 '10 at 12:19

Thought I just go for it (I have back-ups). For all to know, if PHP is compiled into Apache as a .so you can re-make PHP with whatever configuration you want. Just don't forget to stop and start Apache again. Note: issuing a restart command won't work.
