I am looking for an ARM RPM of PHP 4, specificity to install on Fedora 17, however I cant seem to find one anywhere. I assume this is most likely down to ARM not being supported by Fedora in the age of PHP4?

Hopefully either you know where I can grab the RPM or maybe a way to compile from source or some other install method?

Thank you and hopefully someone can help! (if you need more info just ask!)

I don't think you'll be able to find an RPM anywhere for that. Your best bet is compiling fro source. This is not actually too difficult.

  1. Make sure you have a compiler.
  2. Download the source code from php. (link:
  3. Unarchive.
  4. Read instructions in the "INSTALL" file.

you can try with this command for installing php4

apt-get install libapache2-mod-php4

hope it will work in your machine.

Not going to work, fedora uses YUM as its package manger and I have already search the fedora repo's for the package. But thank you – Zac Powell May 11 '13 at 18:03
