My php installations have also several and repeating errors, but its difficult to analyze, because they keep changing. While updating ports using portmanager or portmaster sometimes installation of databases/php5-mysql or databases/php5-mysqli fails or sometimes both but also sometimes both install without errors. When errors occur, it has to do with missing mysql-client libraries, a mysql-client port-installation is attempted and fails because mysql-client is in fact already installed. By manually deinstalling and reinstalling mysql-client port just before the php-mysql port and php-mysqli port installation works, but maybe the next days already same errors occur. Sometimes all ports installe correctly but afterwards php fails to load an installed extension (error message refers to missing functions). This happened once with mysqli-extension, but not mysql and once with sqlite-extension. Some others too, but I don't recall which ones. Usually deinstalling and reinstalling the affected extension fixes it. But there again, I may get the difficulties mentioned above. So in summary, as a non programming observator, i think somehow libraries which where successfully installed get lost at some point on my systems. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
