Unfortunately, I don't find the link is useful there because I can't find anything useful for php installation. Any advice? Thanks.

Nothing useful for installing PHP?
The link gives you step-by-step instructions on how to build PHP for multiple HTTP servers.

What exactly are you trying to do, and what exactly is the problem?
We aren't going to be able to give you any better, generic instructions than that. If you want a more specific answer, you need to ask a more specific question.

Hi,

Maybe I overlook something at the installationg guide in the mentioned URL. I can find some links to unix and other platform. However I can't find the link to Centos Linux 5.4. Can you please help to give me a link at that page so that I can have a look? Many thanks.

Regards,

any specific (non-linux generic) guides you’ll have to search for in the Centos help forums.

Those guides are all generic, covering all Unix variants, including CentOS. (CentOS is a Linux system, which is based on Unix.)

You just need to make sure the prerequisites listed there at the bottom are met. - If you find no CentOS specific instructions, try the RedHat or Fedora suggestions in the comments. If I am not mistaken, CentOS is derived from RedHat.

And note that building PHP from source is not simple. It's not like installing from binary packages where you just issue a few simple commands or open up a GUI installation wizard. You will need to understand how C compilers work, and how to properly configure PHP during the compilation process; which modules you need enabled and how each of them needs to be configured. - You aren't likely to find complete, step-by-step instructions that will work without you having to tweak it for your own setup.

Google is always a good help, too[1].
