Anybody know how to get IMAP working in PHP. I know that squirrelmail uses it, and that works but on phpinfo.php I don't see imap extension working.

The only thing I see in phpinfo.php on my CentOS systems is mod_imap under the Apache Loaded Modules.

I don't know if anything should be different under FreeBSD 6.1.

I don't know anything else has to be installed for IMAP to work; squirrelmail is a PHP application.

Thanks Jeff,

I tried the steps on the following post:

http://www.directadmin.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=11043&highlight=freebsd+imap

I have a programmer working on a script that will read some email on my server and then do a number of things with it, including writing to mysql database and reading from that.

My programmer says this:

'SquirralMail doesnt use IMAP extension for PHP, it writes its own functions to read mails using pure php.'

That set me on course for trying the above.

I tried to build php with php included, but still see this:

In http://fokkohouwing.com/php.php, do not have modules imap that is loaded.
Command to build php; dont have imap.
'./configure' '--with-apxs' '--with-curl' '--with-curl-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--with-gd' '--with-gd-dir=/usr/local' '--with-gettext' '--with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--with-kerberos' '--with-mcrypt' '--with-mhash' '--with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql' '--with-pear' '--with-png-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--with-xml' '--with-zlib' '--with-zlib-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--with-zip' '--with-openssl' '--enable-bcmath' '--enable-calendar' '--enable-ftp' '--enable-magic-quotes' '--enable-sockets' '--enable-track-vars' '--enable-mbstring' '--enable-memory-limit'

File php.ini that is loaded at /usr/local/lib/php.ini doesnt use imap extentions.


thanks for any help!

when I run ./build php n, this is what I get at the end:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lltdl
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/local/directadmin/customapache/php-4.4.4.

Unfortunately I don't know enough about FreeBSD to help you. I've moved the thread to the FreeBSD 6.x forum. Maybe that'll help someone who can help you find it.

As root run:

/usr/sbin/pkg_add -r libltdl15

or

cd /usr/ports/devel/libltdl*
make install clean

Imap on freebsd is run via inetd if you do not have dovecot installed. Make sure inetd is running.

Command to start:

/usr/sbin/inetd -l -R 1024

Then make sure the following are in /etc/rc.conf

inetd_enable="YES"
inetd_flags="-l -R 1024"

This is only if you are not using dovecot and are using vmpop3d.
