Installed My Own PHP on Dreamhost

I finally finally was able to install my own PHP and eAccelerator on Dreamhost. After all the pain and teeth pulling and agony and frustration and hoop-jumping, it was really easy.

Short form:

Configure (set my domain name in both scripts) and run the 2 Alternative PHP 5 Install Scripts

Copy and paste into my .htaccess file.

Verify PHP is running.

Configure (set my domain name) and run the eAccelerator Install Script

Copy and paste into my php.ini file.


One warning.

    Update: I stopped running my own PHP on dreamhost a while back. It was a bother to do updates and diagnose the occasional problem. It’s not dreamhost’s fault, just the bother of maintaining my own codebase.
