I am setting up a Joomla-based website on DL, so far with success, but I
fear I will later hit problems (based on experience on other machines)
because DL (1.4RC1) does not have the mysqli php extension available
(which seems to be necessary, at least sometimes, with Joom!Fish). The
file mysqli.so which I would expect to find in /usr/lib/php/extensions
Quoting http://www.php.net/manual/en/mysqli.installation.php: 'To use
MySQL Native Driver with /mysqli/ you need to configure the PHP source
code using the --with-mysqli=mysqlnd option, prior to building PHP. This
is the recommended option...'.
The php.net website also says: 'If you are using MySQL versions 4.1.3 or
later it is /strongly/ recommended that you use this extension.'
It would be great if this could be added to the next release. Thanks!
