    Hi Forum.
    I've been trying to add pdo_odbc to my easy apache rawopts, but have not been able to compile php and apache successfully.
    In my all_php5 file I've tried a few variations on this option:


    ...none of which work. It consistently fails at at the end of compilation with:

    "You've configured extension pdo_odbc to build statically, but it
    depends on extension pdo, which you've configured to build shared.
    You either need to build pdo_odbc shared or build pdo statically for the
    build to be successful."

    It seems that the expected syntax of "--with-<extension>=shared|static" doesn't jive with php's recommendation for installing a given flavor of pdo_odbc like "--with-pdo-odbc=unixODBC,dir". How do I reconcile these differences? I've not once specified that I want pdo_odbc to build statically, but the presence of the "=unixODBC" seems to imply this.

    More info on my environment:
    php 5.4.20
    apache 2.2
    FreeTDS 0.91
    unixODBC 2.3.1
    hmm.. have I left out any pertinent details?

    If anybody has a clue as to how set this option correctly, I'd sure like to know.
    Many thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    I wanted to share the resolution I found in my test environment so that others may find this helpful.

    -bash-4.1# yum -y install unixODBC unixODBC-devel

    Add the configure flags to the rawopts file for php5. Declaring 'shared' first was necessary.

    -bash-4.1# cat /var/cpanel/easy/apache/rawopts/all_php5

    # /scripts/easyapache --build

    If PDO is not already enabled, you will need to run easyapache without --build and select PDO through the menu.

    -bash-4.1# php -i | grep -i odbc
    Configure Command => './configure' '--disable-fileinfo' '--enable-bcmath' '--enable-calendar' '--enable-ftp' '--enable-libxml' '--enable-pdo=shared' '--enable-sockets' '--prefix=/usr/local' '--with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs' '--with-curl=/opt/curlssl/'
    '--with-imap=/opt/php_with_imap_client/' '--with-imap-ssl=/usr' '--with-kerberos' '--with-libdir=lib64' '--with-libxml-dir=/opt/xml2/' '--with-mysql=/usr' '--with-mysql-sock=/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' '--with-openssl=/usr' '--with-openssl-dir=/usr'
    '--with-pcre-regex=/opt/pcre' '--with-pdo-mysql=shared' '--with-pdo-odbc=shared,unixODBC,/usr' '--with-pdo-sqlite=shared' '--with-pic' '--with-zlib' '--with-zlib-dir=/usr'
    PDO drivers => sqlite, mysql, odbc
    PDO Driver for ODBC (unixODBC) => enabled
    ODBC Connection Pooling => Enabled, strict matching

    I did have to add the extension directive to the php.ini manually, as well

    -bash-4.1# grep pdo_odbc /usr/local/lib/php.ini
