    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.
