    Installation

    By using the –enable-dba=shared configuration
    option you can build a dynamic loadable module to enable PHP for
    basic support of dbm-style databases. You also have to add support
    for at least one of the following handlers by specifying the
    –with-XXXX or
    –enable-XXXX configure
    switch to your PHP configure line.

    Warning

    After configuring and compiling PHP you must
    execute the following test from commandline: php run-tests.php
    ext/dba
    . This shows whether your combination of handlers
    works. Most problematic are dbm and ndbm which
    conflict with many installations. The reason for this is that on
    several systems these libraries are part of more than one other
    library. The configuration test only prevents you from configuring
    malfunctioning single handlers but not combinations.

    Supported DBA handlers
    Handler Configure Switch
    dbm

    To enable support for dbm add –with-dbm[=DIR] .

    Note:

    dbm normally is a wrapper which often results in
    failures. This means you should only use dbm if you are sure it
    works and if you really need this format.

    ndbm

    To enable support for ndbm add –with-ndbm[=DIR] .

    Note:

    ndbm normally is a wrapper which often results in
    failures. This means you should only use ndbm if you are sure it
    works and if you really need this format.

    gdbm To enable support for gdbm add –with-gdbm[=DIR] .
    db2

    To enable support for Oracle Berkeley DB 2 add
    –with-db2[=DIR] .

    Note:

    db2 conflicts with db3 and db4.

    db3

    To enable support for Oracle Berkeley DB 3 add
    –with-db3[=DIR] .

    Note:

    db3 conflicts with db2 and db4.

    db4

    To enable support for Oracle Berkeley DB 4 or 5 add
    –with-db4[=DIR] .

    Note:

    db4 conflicts with db2 and db3.

    Note:

    The db libraries with versions 4.1 through 4.1.24
    cannot be used in any PHP version.

    Support for BDB 5 was added in PHP 5.3.3.

    cdb

    To enable support for cdb add –with-cdb[=DIR] .

    Note:

    You can omit DIR to use the bundled cdb library
    that adds the cdb_make handler which allows creation of cdb files
    and allows to access cdb files on the network using PHP’s
    streams.

    flatfile

    To enable support for flatfile add –enable-flatfile . Before PHP 5.2.1
    the –with-flatfile had
    to be used instead.

    Note:

    This was added to add compatibility with deprecated
    dbm extension. Use this handler only when you cannot
    install one of the libraries required by the other handlers and
    when you cannot use bundled cdb handler.

    inifile

    To enable support for inifile add
    –enable-inifile . Before
    PHP 5.2.1 the –with-inifile had to be used
    instead.

    Note:

    This was added to allow to read and set microsoft
    style .ini files (like the php.ini file).

    qdbm

    To enable support for qdbm add –with-qdbm[=DIR] .

    Note:

    qdbm conflicts with dbm and gdbm.

    Note:

    The qdbm library can be loaded from » http://fallabs.com/qdbm/index.html.

    tcadb

    To enable support for Tokyo Cabinet add
    –with-tcadb[=DIR] .

    Note:

    This was added in PHP 5.4.0. The Tokyo Cabinet
    library can be loaded from » http://fallabs.com/tokyocabinet/.

    lmdb

    To enable support for the Lightning Memory-Mapped
    Database add –with-lmdb[=DIR] .

    Note:

    This was added in PHP 7.2.0. The Lightning
    Memory-Mapped Database library can be loaded from » https://symas.com/lmdb/.
