Slackware Postgresql and PHP

I installed the latest postgresql on slackware and everything seems to be running fine so far. Is the PHP installed with Slackware compiled with Postgresql support or do I need to uninstall and compile PHP with Postgresql support?

If you are accessing your database through the Apache webserver you will have to recompile Apache and PHP.

Probably won't have to recompile Apache - the DB functionality is part of PHP, which is just an Apache module/handler.

In general, a quick way to check whether PHP has been compiled with what you need is to make a PHP file that looks like this:


Load that up in a web browser, and it'll give you a (long) HTML page with just about everything you need to know about your PHP configuration.
