Apache crash when pgsql ext is enabled in php.ini [SOLVED]

Postby mgcrit » 10. October 2011 17:16

Hello

I'm using XAMPP 1.7.7 on Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit (Version 6.1 (Build 7601: Service Pack 1)).
I'm directly editing the php.ini found on c:\xampp\php\php.ini and restarting apache using the Services snap-in of the Microsoft Management Console so the Control Panel version used is irrelevant.
Whenever I enable a PostgreSQL extension (both php_pgsql.dll and php_pdo_pgsql.dll were tested separately with identical results), apache crashes when starting without printing any useful information to error.log.
Can anybody confirm this behavior and eventually point to a solution?

Thanks

Solved! The php postgresql extensions depend on the native libraries. Copying the libpq.dll to the C:\xampp\php\ext\ solved the problem. However I would prefer a cleaner solution not involving messing around with the installation directories apart from changing the configuration files. Any ideias?

Ooops, with the hurry I hadn't removed the comment on the php.ini. The problem still persists... :(

Actually, using that Control Panel 3 beta revealed this error:

httpd.exe
this application has failed to start because LIBPQ.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

You could try copying the libpq.dll from "xampp/php" to the "xampp/apache/bin" directory. Adding required DLLs to this directory has fixed similar problems with other extensions.
