Hi, Ricardo,

1) is an anonymous ftp dir
managed by SuSE staff where you can download latest apache with all
accessories like mod_perl and mod_php. Please note you CANNOT install
php-5.1.x alone, you have to update the rest of apache installation INCLUDING

2) SLES 9 as far as I know is based on SuSE 9.0. I have looked at the Apache
project dir, and unfortunately, there is NO builds for SuSE 9.0, the last is
9.3. You can try to install 9.3 rpms on SLES 9 but I am not sure it will
work, they have been (probably, not 100% sure) compiled with different
version of gcc.

So, basically, you have 3 solutions:

1) Build PHP 5 RPMs yourself (I have tried, it was nightmare, with no result
because of too many dependencies).

2) Wait for SLES 10.

3) Use OpenSuSE 10.0 or 10.1RC1. I have no idea what you are looking in SLES
what is not present in OpenSuSE.
