    On my iTouch v1.2, where I already installed dozens of other packages (including Apache), the PHP install doesn't go up to the end: download is OK, but then installation seems instant, there is no "cleaning up" phase, the iTouch doesn't lock in the end, and in fact when I look again in installer.app installable packages PHP is still there (and nowhere in the "uninstall" section).

    My interpretation is that there is a problem during this very precise installation process here.

    I suspected a lack of room on the touch (would this be explicitly stated?): I removed a big wedict dictionary, restarted the touch, retried: no way. I can install other packages, but not the php one.

    What can I do?
    is there some place where I could get php manually? (I fear there are lots of libraries?)

    TIA!

    if you suspect it's a space problem, then move the apps directory to another location and create a symlink to it. i heard that an app called bosstool could do this for you using the ipod touch's interface, but i'm not sure. i did mine manually by using putty and ssh'ing in.

    i have php installed. but i have no idea how you can change the settings. there's no php.ini file that i can find, despite the php_info.php file saying that it's there.

    I'm certain that you're out of application space. use the method that's stickied to remove the application space limit and try again.
