I'm new at recompiling PHP/APACHE on a Redhat 7.3 linux server.

My first question, are there any good PHP/APACHE forum sites with admins that could answer some of my questions? WebmasterWorld.com was my first choice, but perhaps this may not be the place to post such questions.

Next, I'm in desperate need of enabling "mbstring" functions to my server. I basically need the Japanese language for PHP 4.3.0.

I read some of the docs over on PHP.net, but it's still a bit confusing with some parts.

I'm pretty sure my PHP is compiled with Apache so I probably need to redo everything to enable the mbstring extensions as they are not located in my php.ini file.

I have time to go slow with this, but I really don't know where to begin. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. There are lots of things I'd like to enable, so this is very important for me to learn and figure out.

I'm lots of people will request things such as Curl, Mcrypt, Mbstring, etc and really need to get some experience with this.

Thanks again,

You could try news:comp.infosystems.www.servers.unix.

Or you could try compiling PHP4.3 with the Zeus Web Server and use that combination...
