Does any one know how to find out the way that PHP was compiled on a VDI server.

I need to know if it was compiled with the followings:






If it wasn't is there a way to enable above configuration with out recompiling PHP?

I am no PHP guru but don't you just add in <?php phpinfo(); ?> to your page and it gives loads on info.

Have a look at Configure Command (3rd one down) and it lists all the compile flags. Well my PHP 4 install does anyway.

Hope it helps.

I have no idea how you would do it with a virtual account. I have been compiling and trying it on a dedicated machine. ie. I have root access. So with root access just recompile with standard flags plus the extra ones...

What do --with-dom and --with-qtdom do?
I haven't compiled with thoses, what am I missing out on?

You could try asking the person that runs your server if they will recompile with the extras you are wanting (you had better have a good reason why you need them though). They are bound to re-compile it and re-install it every so often when patches come out. I have found when you ask web hosts technical questions they don't know the answer and give a silly answer. I think it is just sales people answering tec support questions but either way it is very hard to get anywhere.

Good luck.

you can't do it with a virtual account (unless you compile your own httpd and run it on a non priveledged port)

So uh..when did he say he was on a virtual account?

Eddie, Check out and it tells you in the Installation (or configuring?) section.

I think eddie has edited his post as I think he has changed the --XXXX that he wants to know about.

After saying that I think it shows when you edit. If he didn't I probably read 2 threads and replied in one. We all get confused at some point.

No it doesn't show as this is my 2nd edit.
