Graphics Libraries – PHP 5.3.6

I wanted to update php to version 5.3.6 from 5.3.2 to cover some security issues. I also wanted to include the GD graphics library functions in this version of php. This will allow image manipulation by script, something that will allow for more dynamic, visual customization.

This is what got installed/updated:

jpeg8
libpng 1.2.44
libxml 2.7.8
freetype 2.4.4
php 5.3.6

So… […]

MySQL 5.1.44

This new version is out. I looked at the release notes https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/news-5-1-44.html and determined that none of these issues immediately affect this work or the new WERC website. I am not going to bother with this upgrade until the final rollover to production server.

PHP 5.1.31

I was running into errors with the previous ./configure command. I did some searching and found that the zlib library had changed and had to be recompiled if shared.

The PHP configure script now is:
./configure –prefix=/usr/local/php5
–mandir=/usr/share/man
–infodir=/usr/share/info
–sysconfdir=/etc
–with-config-file-path=/etc
–with-zlib
–with-zlib-dir=/usr/zlib
–with-openssl
–without-iconv
–enable-exif
–enable-ftp
–enable-mbstring
–enable-mbregex
–enable-sockets
–with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql
–with-pdo-mysql=/usr/local/mysql
–with-mysqli=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config
–with-mysql-sock=/tmp/mysql.sock
–with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs

Mail Server Fixed

changed the php.ini file to read:

sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/postfix -t -i

postfix actually changes over the “sendmail” binary I think.

There is a test doc up at:

https://beta.ine.uaf.edu/mailTest.php it contains a simple time function and mail() call. Just edit the email address there to have it send to you.

I test this out and it survives a restart.

Interesting mail […]
