Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 23567
adding PDF support causes Apache startup failure
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:35 EDT
In order to compile-in PDF support into PHP, the RPMs must be built with:
option in the configure script after installing pdflib-3.x. Due to the
bug mentioned at:
the compile --with-pdflib fails on anything less than php-4.0.4
So, grabbing the php-4.0.4-1 src.rpm from Rawhide, adding --with-pdflib to
the configure script in the spec file, installing pdflib-3.03 (--enable-
shared-pdflib because the java components fail during make otherwise), and
then building the RPMs - all goes well.
Because pdflib wasn't installed via RPM, the pdflib.so.0 file dependency
is complained about, so the RPMs are installed via: 'rpm -Uvh --nodeps'
Then try restarting Apache, and you'll notice the problem:
[root@providence i386]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart
Shutting down http: [ OK ]
Starting httpd: Syntax error on line 256 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
Cannot load /etc/httpd/modules/libphp4.so into server: shared object not
This occurs when php-4.0.4 is compiled/installed via RPM or directly using
configure, make, make install. Uninstalling the new RPMs and then using
the php-4.0.3pl1-2 RPMs allows Apache to restart properly, but obviously
there is no PDF support there.
How can this be resolved?
needed to add /usr/local/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf and then run /sbin/ldconfig
because pdflib installs itself by default into /usr/local/lib rather
