PHP BCMATH and GMP libraries?

software development


I want to add OpenID support to my sites. To accomplish this I need the OpenID PHP library from JanRain, which in turn depends on GMP or BCMath.

Is it easy/hard to add these libraries to a custom PHP compilation? Or is it possible at all?

I’m new to programming you know.

Programming has nothing to do with installing those extensions/modules. Your setup however would requiring altering the current PHP5 installation guide (in the DH wiki) to include those. Assuming your experience in that field isn’t too great, then yes, it would be a bit difficult. Google’ing around a bit and reading the installation docs for each would go a long way to help you figure it out :wink:
