Installing/Configuring XSL Support

I am attempting to enable our CentOS server to have XSL support.
We have the following libraries installed.

PHP 5:

I do not have:
XSL and libxslt listed though when executing phpinfo.

Will these libraries need to be manually installed from their rpm? Or does PHP version 5 already have this library.

Forgive me, I'm not a noob but I'm definitely still learning. I was attempting to use as a guide.

PHP 5 includes the XSL extension by default and can be enabled by adding the argument --with-xsl[=DIR] to your configure line. DIR is the libxslt installation directory.

Yes I saw that documentation. My only issue is trying to locate the configure file. Is there an easy way to locate it? Please correct me if I'm wrong but the below guide is correct also? Or is this not necessary with PHP5?


Configure PHP with XSL support. To do that, execute the following commands, in this sequence:

./configure \
--prefix=/usr/local/php \
--with-config-file-path=/usr/local/php \
--with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs \

Note: The flags used above only enable XSL support. Add any other flags that might be necessary for your own configuration, such as MySQL support, LDAP, FTP, and so on. Also, the path to your current PHP installation may be different than /usr/local/php, depending on your settings or the Linux/Unix version you are using.

Compile PHP:



Install PHP:

make install

4. Restart your web server.
