    [HOWTO] Get 'libsodium' working with PHP 7.2

    I come from PHP 5 (mcrypt) and need to migrate to libsodium. Even tough sodium should be part of PHP 7.2 by default, without the need for a PECL extension, all sodium function calls failed.
    My DA install is 100% fresh, with only PHP 7.2 (CentOS 7 with php-fpm).

    Here is what i did to make it working:

    Install sodium:
    yum install libsodium-devel
    Reconfigure PHP (follow this guide to see how):
    cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
    mkdir -p custom/fpm
    cp -fp configure/fpm/configure.php72 custom/fpm/configure.php72
    nano custom/fpm/configure.php72
    Add "--with-sodium" to the file & rebuild PHP:
    ./build php n
    Check result:
    php -i | grep sodium
    Should give you now output like:
    Configure Command =>  './configure'  '--prefix=/usr/local/php72' '--program-suffix=72' '--enable-fpm' '--with-fpm-systemd' '--with-config-file-scan-dir=/usr/local/php72/lib/php.conf.d' '--with-curl' '--with-gd' '--with-gettext' '--with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--with-freetype-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--with-libxml-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--with-kerberos' '--with-openssl' '--with-mhash' '--with-mysql-sock=/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' '--with-mysqli=mysqlnd' '--with-pcre-regex=/usr/local' '--with-pdo-mysql=mysqlnd' '--with-pear' '--with-png-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--with-xsl' '--with-zlib' '--enable-zip' '--with-iconv=/usr/local' '--enable-bcmath' '--enable-calendar' '--enable-ftp' '--enable-sockets' '--enable-soap' '--enable-mbstring' '--with-icu-dir=/usr/local/icu' '--with-sodium' '--enable-intl'
    sodium support => enabled
    libsodium headers version => 1.0.16
    libsodium library version => 1.0.16
    Restart PHP for apache:
    /bin/systemctl restart php-fpm72
    Hope this helps someone, but it would be cool if the DA script would add the '--with-sodium' dynamically if it was existing on the system.

    Now continue to dive into sodium!

    update: if you run ./build update this is now part of DA.
