Reconfigure PHP for Apache2

Posted February 25, 2014 3.4k views
I'm using the LAMP configuration of DO but now I want to recompile PHP to enable Thread Safety. Now, I'n not a Linux expert so I'm not quite sure how to do it and what parameters to use etc. Is there somebody that could offer some assistance?
