View Full Version : [ubuntu] Need php embed

April 22nd, 2009, 06:20 PM
I need the 'embed' SAPI for php. I was able to get the 'cli' SAPI installed using:

apt-get install php5-cli

There doesn't appear to be a php5-embed package although there is a discussion (bug report) on it here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/php5/+bug/191251 which discusses a 'libphp5-embed' ... 'apt-get install libphp5-embed' doesn't work either.

Is there some way to get this installed using "normal" Ubuntu methods (i.e. using apt-get)... (perhaps there is an alternate server that provides this package?)

Or is the only way to get this to completely uninstall the regular PHP packages and download and install PHP from source?

P.S. This is on Ubuntu 8.04 (8.04 LTS??)
P.P.S. This is needed for installing plphp (pl/php) with postgres
