Well, I followed the procedure at http://wiki.dreamhost.com/PHP.ini so now I have a php.ini in my cgi-bin. I edited php.ini so it has the lines
; Directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside.
extension_dir = "/home/ykfpdata/ykfp.org/php/ChartDirector/lib"
so it's pointed at my libraries.
Now http://ykfp.org/php/phpinfo.php runs, and shows that it's using the ini file in cgi-bin
But now none of the scripts that call the library will run. Look at http://ykfp.org/php/BOR/test.php This seems to indicate the library can't load because DH's php is running in safe mode. But in my php.ini file I have enable_dl = On and safe_mode = Off
Isn't the problem that my library contains .so files, not just .dll and php files? Isn't that what caused me to compile my own php back in 7/08?
