I am having issues in compiling the PHP 5.3.29 on Ubuntu 16.04
My question: Say if I compile PHP on earlier version of ubuntu and copy it over to Ubuntu 16.04. Will it work as expected or it will fail?

You will need these two extra packages if you don't have them:
sudo apt-get install build-essential libxml2-dev
wget http://in1.php.net/distributions/php-5.3.29.tar.bz2 tar -xvf php-5.3.29.tar.bz2 cd php-5.3.29 ./configure make make test # Neither mandatory nor a bad idea. sudo make install
The instructions will untar the source build and they will install php in your system.
