error: php.h no such file or directory

I am working with the following tutorial:

I did create in a folder the php_sample.h file. I have an error: php.h no such file or directory. I've installed php and apache using apt-get install. SHould i import in my file php.h ? I also don't know where to look for config.m4. I've searched in usr/lib/php5 but i didn't find it. In usr/local there is no appache folder. Need some tips. Thx! Appreciate

I would like to mention that i am working in ubuntu 10.10. I've tested a simple .php code after adding it in /var/www and it works.


  • you need php-dev package. php is just binary package while php-dev contains source files.
