HTML Tidy on linux under XAMPP

Filed under: PHP — Tags: , , , — hoball @ 11:53 pm

Installing tidy on PHP5 under linux is pain. The manual says  “compile with –with-tidy”, but it is not really happening.

Finally I made it work on my fedora (using XAMPP) by this method:

# Install libtidy
yum -y install tidy

# Download PHP 5 source

# Unpack the source
tar xvzf php-5.3.0.tar.gz

# Configure tidy for installed php5 API
cd php-5.3.0/ext/tidy

# Stay at the same folder, Configure & Compile the source
./configure --with-php-config=/opt/lampp/bin/php-config --with-tidy
make clean    <-- Without this the compile builds a bad module for some reason
make install

# Install module into php.ini - Add:: extension="tidy.so"
vi /opt/lampp/etc/php.ini
