    problem installing PHP-IMAP

    Hello there fellow members.
    I wanted to have email bounce function in my script but the script asks me to install php-imap in order to process bounces.

    So i installed php-imap by:
    sudo yum install --disableexludes=all php-imap

    and it says it's installed.

    And i followed directadmin's instruction to add these two lines to new file i create configure.php5 in /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/custom/ap2

    and built php by this command:
    ./build php n

    After it was being built there comes this error:

    [b]/usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/custom/ap2/configure.php5: line 37: --with-imap=/usr/lib/doveco/imap: No such file or directory

    *** There was an error while trying to configure php. Check the custom/ap2/configure.php5 file[b]

    is this line wrong? but i followed it from directadmin's official instruction.
    What am i doing wrong here?

    thank you

    Hello and welcome!

    It sounds like you need dovecot (an IMAP server) installed. Try this:

    sudo yum install dovecot

    Hi, i installed dovecot and dovecot folder problem is not there anymore but imap is there:
    /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/custom/ap2/configure.php5: line 32: --with-imap=/usr/lib/dovecot/imap: No such file or directory

    i had installed php-imap before:
    Package php-imap-5.1.6-39.el5_8.x86_64 already installed and latest version

    What is your configure.php5 command supposed to be doing, exactly? Can you provide a link to the instructions that you are following?

    There is some discussion of php and imap for directadmin discussed here.
