    Issues with phpbb & php

    Cutting straight to the chase...

    Installed php 5 (dev-lang/php), configured apache to use php (-D PHP5), setup mysql (and is working properly).

    Returns the proper info.

    Yet, I emerged phpBB & tried to install it via the install scipt in /var/www/localhost/htdocs/phpBB/install/install.php

    But it returns this error:
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function preg_match() in /var/www/localhost/htdocs/phpBB/install/install.php on line 206
    Research shows that I needed to use the "pcre" flag. I tried that with no success.

    I then added the "session" & "mysql", then removed "recode". I had to remove recode as it was conflicting with the "mysql" flag.

    That made no difference.
    What do I do? I seem to have exhausted almost all options.

    Thanks guys,

    Perhaps you do'nt have this PB but I had the same (preg_match ... not found) and after recompil php with pcre and restart apache I didn't have this PB anymore.

    Do you try to restart apache after recompiling php ?

    I think there must be some variable to be changed to activate PHP in it...
