Hi all,

I am trying to setup a web page that requires various PHP extension installed. I have used this before on Windows IIS 6.0/7.0/7.5.

It requires GD, IMAP (just to mention a few. I know in Windows you need to specify the folder that the extensions are installed within the php.ini file.

I have found a folder

 /usr/lib/php5/20090626+lfs

Open in new window


But that appears to be a red herring. Can anyone point me in the correct direction and also if I need to specify the folder location at all on Ubuntu.

You should not change that ...

You can install extensions simply by issuing :

sudo apt-get install php5-gd
sudo apt-get install php5-imap

(dunno if this are the exact module names ... you could do apt-cache search php | grep imap .... etc)

You might want to check out this resource:
http://www.krahn.org/2010/06/installing-ubuntu-10-04-lucid-lynx-for-php-development/

(The author sets up Ubuntu in a virtual machine, so skip the first section).

Ziceva,

I have already used that command:

"sudo apt-get install php5-gd
sudo apt-get install php5-imap"

But didn't work as when I am in the directory I mentioned those files are not present.

what was the output of those commands? were there any errors?
If everything went ok, then you can search for the modules by issuing:

sudo updatedb
(this may take a while ... specially if you have a big filesystem)

then do

sudo locate gd.so
or
sudo locate imap.so

You should be able to see were those files went and move them (or better create simlinks) in the extensions folder

Appears PHP5 doesn't support mailparse. Unless anyone can prove me wrong?

Hi all,

Already tried those suggestions and still couldn't get it to work. I have gone back to PHP4 as Cerb4 is still available.
