Ticket #19526 (closed defect: fixed)

Opened 7 years ago

Last modified 6 years ago

php5's extension_dir INI variable is incorrect

Reported by: bjd@… Owned by: ryandesign@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.7.1
Keywords: Cc: stronk7@…
Port: php5


APC won't load. This error appears in Apache's error log:

PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library './' - (null) in
 Unknown on line 0

In bash, if I run "php -m" I see the same error.

phpinfo() shows no evidence of APC running.

This doesn't actually cause PHP to fail. I can use PHP just fine.

The default value of extension_dir in php.ini is the current directory. It should be:

In php 5.3.0, the sample php.ini files list the extension_dir directive commented out, and with that, php knows where to load the extensions from. I will test whether that is sufficient for php 5.2.9 and 4.4.9; if so, I can patch the sample php.ini files included with those versions to comment out the extension_dir directive. If not, I'll insert the current extensions dir path as Anthony showed above (though I'll get it by executing "php-config --extension-dir").

In any case, this will only affect the sample php.ini files; the user will still be responsible for correcting their own php.ini files.

Has duplicate #19976.

  • r53562: Added a notice to the php5extension portgroup that gets printed if the user's php.ini has an incorrect extension_dir directive. So although the user still needs to correct their own php.ini, they will be notified immediately upon installing any extension what they need to do to fix it. php5 will be updated to 5.3.0 shortly which includes sample php.ini files that don't have the problem, which should take care of things for new users.

Confirmed. Commenting out extension_dir in php.ini makes extension to be loaded properly (tested with php-yaz that was my dupe problem at #19976).
