Exclamation Installing PHP extensions


Hi,

I have installed installed Apache 2.2.9 + php 5.2.6 on a CentOS 4 server. Now I want to install some php extensions. I don't know how to do that for linux. I know about php.ini and extension_dir, but where to find the .dll & .so files? I see an ext directory with the downloaded php-5.2.6.tar.gz, inside that I see all extension directories but those are source codes. How to get them installed in php? I don't want to recompile.

Please help. I googled a lot but helpless.

Perhaps you're referring to PHP additional modules? Linux doesn't use dll files, that's Windows. If you are looking for extensions or modules, those are usually installed with PEAR.

Yeah I heard that word "PEAR" while googling but no ideas how to go with that. Can you please guide me installing(step by step) one extension say "mcrypt", so that I can do the rest?

It's usually as easy as:

Code:
pear install <package-name>
That's if pear is already installed. Check out http://pear.php.net for more info. Good online manual on how to install and use here: http://pear.php.net/manual/en/
