warning! dlname not found in /usr/local/apache/modules/ (Errors & Solutions #11)

I got this error while doing "make install" step for php


warning! dlname not found in /usr/local/apache/modules/
Assuming installing a .so rather than a libtool archive.
chmod 755 /usr/local/apache/modules/
chmod: cannot access `/usr/local/apache/modules/': No such file or
apxs:Error: Command failed with rc=65536


Some threads on the web said that the solution was to download the .bz2 archive instead of the .gz one

The solution that worked for me:

I had some problems (errors) in the "make" step which i didn't notice, so i made "make clean" then redid the "make" correctly then the "make install" worked well
