Hello,

I currently run the following on a VPS:

Operating system: Linux 2.6.9
Ubuntu 8.04
Plesk Control Panel v8.6.0 with Virtuozzo

I would like to amend the php.ini file in order to activate an extension.

Would you please be kind enough to guide me through the process?

Many thanks

It looks like the extension doesn't exist ? php.ini says:

; Directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside.
; extension_dir = "./"

But there is no list of extensions to uncomment ? Does that mean that what ever is in that directory will be activated?
