Hello guys

I've question : Why extension_dir in php.ini and pecl not same ?

[email protected]:[/home/shams.eldin]: php -i | grep extension_dir
<tr><td class="e">extension_dir</td><td class="v">/usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20090626</td><td class="v">/usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20090626</td></tr>

[email protected]:[/home/shams.eldin]: pecl config-show
PHP extension directory ext_dir /usr/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20090626
!!

I know too i should fix this problem by create symlink. But it is a workaround :/
And I need to know why not same ?

Hello :)

Could you let us know which version of PHP is installed on your system, and when the last time you updated it through EasyApache was?

Thank you.

Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look? You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

Thank you.

To update, here are some snippets of the explanation from the support request:

/usr/lib/php/ is the default location for PECL builds. When compiling PHP from source, the extension_dir in the sever's global php.ini should be used.
/usr/lib/php/... path comes from the php build and it doesn't use the extension_dir in the php.ini file. PHP: dl - Manual tells how you it gets that directory.
Thank you.
