There are some scripts that I want to install on my server with Softaculous but require me to enable features on my server.
They are : PDO MySQL
curl
mbstring
zlib
ftp
gettext
mcrypt

Is it ok to go ahead and add all of these in apache, my concern is would any of these cause a problem or security issue, or are they required for most applications anyway.
I was trying to learn about PDO, also would this cause problems with existing or future MySQL databases on server?
Thanks.

Hello :)

Those are common modules enabled on many systems through EasyApache. I am not aware of any specific security flaws associated with any of those modules at this time, however it's always best to consult with a qualified system administrator for specific security advice.

In addition, you should not encounter any problems with your MySQL databases after enabling the PDO module.

Thank you.
