What you will find here is primarily a walk through for installing Apache with PHP support for SQL Server on Linux and FreeBSD. There are also instructions for other packages that may be added optionally, such as mySQL, mod_gzip, mhash etc. I've specifically tested these instructions with RedHat Linux from versions 6.0 to 9.0, FreeBSD from versions 4.2 to 4.8, OpenBSD 3.1 to 3.2 and most recently, NetBSD 1.6. If you're attempting to use this guide for OpenBSD or NetBSD, then you can pretty much follow all the instructions that I have detailed for FreeBSD and it should work just fine.
The reader is assumed to have some basic skills on *nix systems, such as the ability to list files in a directory, edit a file, change file permissions etc. If you have no idea what I'm trying to say here, please purchase a beginner's guide and learn how to do these basic tasks first.
If you are looking for the older apache guide that I first wrote, then you will find it here. Please note that I didn't quite know as much then, so some of the information there is non-standard. I also added several new sections and modules to the new guide. With that said, here's my new and much improved guide.
