I need a little Linux help if possible. I have a RPI with OSMC set up and all is working fine. And now the OFF TOPIC help needed:
I am trying to set up a genealogy site on Raspberry Pi. The genealogy application is Webtrees and it needs both PHP and MySQL installed before I set up Webtrees. I have Raspbian up to date and I believe I am using the current versions of PHP (I’ve installed 7.0) and MySQL.
After installing Webtrees, I get the following error messages:
PHP extension “pdo_mysql” is disabled. You cannot install webtrees until this is enabled. Please ask your server’s administrator to enable it.
PHP extension “gd” is disabled. Without it, the following features will not work: creating thumbnails of images. Please ask your server’s administrator to enable it.
I monitor this forum regular and I know there are some great Linux gurus here. I have searched the web and tried so many suggestions it has made my head spin. I am hoping someone can help and guide me to a solution. I am good at copying and pasting code and have no problem working with SSH. But I am not very versed in Linux, I am willing to learn as I go.
I’ve tried this. I’m sorry, I should have stated what I’ve done. When I install php and MySQL, on the raspberry pi, then run, the webtree software, that is the error message I get. Webtree s can’t run before the errors are resolved.
Ok…so it doesn’t look like I have a php.ini in the 7.0 folder, so I think I need to create one. But I also see that I have PHP5.0 on the RPI. Does that need to be removed? If so, what is the best way to do that. Thanks for holding my hand!
Sorry, that was the limit of my knowledge. It’s been a while since I configured PHP modules.
Somewhere, there’s a php.ini file (you can use findto find it). Also, it’s possible that modules are enabled/disabled using file system links (the mods-available directory hints at that kind of setup).
Again, I investigate to see if I can find the php.ini file. I’m going away for the weekend, so I will not be able to work on it until later.
@jb2cool, I’ve already tried asking for help on the official raspberry pi forum. I had one person try to help. But after, two simple suggestions, the person got very snarky and rude. So I gave up. If I’m taking up too much bandwidth on this forum, I’m sorry. It was a long shot.
