Default How do I compile/enable IMAP4 on PHP?

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a detailed explanation of how to enable IMAP4 on PHP!. I have this web application (running on APACHE on LINUX), that needs the IMAP4 enabled on PHP.

I was told I had to compile PHP with IMAP4 support, but I cant find any detailed help online.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Why do you have to compile it, just install the module if you are using a redhat based system the module is called php-imap.

How ever if you are using a custom compiled php then you need the c-client then you should add this to your configure.
./configure --with-imap[=DIR]
Where DIR is the directory where the c-client is installed. More info is found here http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.imap.php
