    First time installing litespeed from scratch on local virtualised CentOS 5.5 64bit server and trying to understand the options presented in litespeed admin -> actions -> compile PHP section

    default 5.3.4 looks like the below screenshot

    - what is the 'Extra PATH environment' field for ?


    Now I am eventually trying to replicate as much the environment that a WHM/Litespeed install has using the apache conf but my local server only has apache 2.2.3 and php 5.3.5 installed prior to installing litespeed 4.0.18.

    so this is my current apache 2.2.3 and PHP 5.3.5 configuration options (also have compiled memcache 2.2.5 with memcached 1.4.5 server)

    so would it be correct to just put the following into configure parameters box ?

    i tried this and after running command


    nothing is happening in litespeed admin monitoring/status build for php ?

    all I see is this


    and all that is shown in ssh telnet is

    But phpinfo.php reports PHP 5.3.4 has been installed ?

    I want to be able to switch between apache and litespeed for testing.

    EXTRA_PATH environment is for the path that holds programs like curl, fetch or wget in case they are in unusual places.

    Regarding nothing shown in admin console, please do below and see if anything in there.

    Maybe root user has umask 077, the web console cannot read buildphp_1295439762.1.lo.
