    installing php soap extension on linux box

    Hi,
    I'm trying to enable the SOAP extension on my server, which is running linux.

    1) Is it possible to enable this extension dynamically (i.e. by simply modifying the php.ini file) like you can do in the windows installation? From what I have been able to find on the web I think the answer to this question is No, but perhaps I've read the wrong stuff...

    2) If I cannot enable Soap dynamically, I believe I have to reconfigure my PHP installation with the command:
    ./configure --enable-soap
    When I run this command do I need to include all the other configuration options for PHP as well, or will this command simply add --enable-soap on top of the configuration options for my current installation of PHP?

    Thanks in advance,
    Dave

    What distribution is this? The best way to add php-soap is going to be by installing it with the package manager. On debian and derivatives, it's aptitude install php-soap

    You could try to phpize on the the soap sourcecode from CVS to get a dynamic extension.
    I'm not sure if this was any help, but I hope it didn't make you stupider.

    Experience is something you get just after you really need it.

    The distribution is Red Hat 4.4

    I'll try reading up on phpize but I didn't understand that on my first take.
