OK cheers for that, id10t. The delay in my response represents me looking through the Debian releases and trying to apply them to my little arm-based PC.
It opens up a whole other can of worms , as I have found 2 packages for the arm architecture, one php5-cgi, and one php5-sqlite.
The package names if you're interested are:
Now, I've tried my best to get the cgi binary running as per my example php cgi from the manufacturers of the arm-PC, and I just can't.
I believe the php5-sqlite is going to be an addon - and that the pdo_sqlite.so and sqlite.so need to be placed in some kind of shared /lib/ directory.
So it's no surprise that I can't get the two packages working in conjunction.
Anyway I can't seem to find any documentation on how to use the packages debian, so if you can throw any light on this then please do!
