Hi Eli,

it seems to me that the PHPRC environment variable is not set correctly.

Here is how it works: In $FGS_HOME/www/apachectl, around line 98, you
should see:

for file in `ls -1 $FGS_HOME/www/bin/*.init`

This code calls every files in $FGS_HOME/www/bin with the .init
extension. Normally, you should have this file : php.init in
$FGS_HOME/www/bin. It contains :

export PHPRC=$FGS_HOME/www/conf

and then (!) in $FGS_HOME/www/conf.d/php.conf:


With that, PHP knows where to read his php.ini file. In this file, you
should see:

extension_dir = "/opt/ishmael/www/lib/php4"

(note: php.ini is created from php.ini.template)
You can test your script "manually", from the command line, with :

$FGS_HOME/www/cgi-bin/php4 -c $FGS_HOME/www/conf/php.ini -f init.php

I hope it will help you !
