PHP startup warning on amazon aws

Recommended Posts

Hi all,
 

I am getting the following warning in the log file 

 

 

PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib64/php/5.6/modules/mysqli.so' - /usr/lib64/php/5.6/modules/mysqli.so: undefined symbol: mysqlnd_connect in Unknown on line 0

 

 

and because of this, I think, the library functions are not working. For e.g. if I write code with 

strlen() or mb_strlen()

 lib functions, the code fails to work. 

 

Here is the simple test code which gives an http error 500.:

 

<?php
 $sl = "astha12ah";
 sayname($sl);

 function sayname($n){
        $len= mb_strlen($n, 'UTF-8');
        echo $len;
    //  echo strlen($n);
        echo "<br>";
        echo "<br>";
        echo $n;
        return;
 }

?>

Any help appreciated in resolving this. 

 

Thanks all !

Hi requinix, 

 

The operating system is Amazon Linux. The program uses a bash script, as a hook in the yml, to build PHP, apache, mysql .

 

Here is the script:

sudo yum groupinstall -y "Web Server" "MySQL Database"
sudo yum install php56
#yum list installed | grep php
sudo yum install -y php5.6 php5.6-mcrypt php5.6-mbstring php5.6-curl php5.6-cli php5.6-mysql php5.6-gd php5.6-intl php5.6-xsl php5.6-zip libapache2-mod-php5.6
sudo yum install -y php56-mysqlnd

wget https://tn123.org/mod_xsendfile/mod_xsendfile.c --no-check-certificate
sudo yum install gcc
sudo yum install httpd24-devel.x86_64
sudo apxs -cia mod_xsendfile.c
sudo service httpd restart 

 

 
As you can see, I skipped the PHP as a part of group install and then used the lines below to install the  version 5.6 of PHP

 

Thanks.

sudo yum install -y php56-mysqlnd
Sure it's not "php5.6-mysqlnd"? But even then, having php5.6-mysql (which presumably provides mysqli) depend on mysqlnd implicitly but not explicitly is weird.

Hi requinix,

 

Yes, the googled page specifically mentioned that it has to be php56-mysqlnd. Maybe you can suggest how may I uninstall the php and reinstall it. Any other suggestions perhaps ?

 

Thanks.

I don't know what you searched for but I do know that

sudo yum install php56
sudo yum install -y php5.6 ...
is weird: you should not have two sets of PHP 5.6 packages available. One or the other. So one of those works and the other doesn't.

 

What php5* packages do you have installed already? What is the proper name of the mysqlnd package?

 

If you don't know how to find out, what are the repo URIs mentioned in /etc/yum/repos.d?

Hi requinix, 

 

I think the two repos are : a) the default repo of Amazon and b) the ppa:ondrej 

 

There is no repo.d in etc/yum.  

 

 

[ec2-user@ip-172-131-20-181 yum]$ ls -la

total 28
drwxr-xr-x  6 root root 4096 Aug 28 12:13 .
drwxr-xr-x 85 root root 4096 Aug 30 05:41 ..

OK I found the repos here  etc/yum.repos.d :

And they say Android is fragmented...

 

ppa:ondrej? The Ubuntu repository? On Amazon Linux, which is based on RHEL? Am I confused or is that totally backwards?

 

What do

yum repolist
yum list installed | grep php
show?

hmm , I guess that's my fault requinix. I checked installing php5.6 on digital ocean tutorial and then implemented it here changing the apt-get by yum !! :o  :o Sorry.

Uninstall whatever's been added with apt. Just stick with yum whenever possible.

 

Then see if you still have a problem at all. You might not.

hmmm ni I never used apt to install anything. I used only yum but took the procedure from an ubuntu tutorial. Do I need to remove the ppa:ondrej repo / package from my linux so that it may not interfere ? What would be the command for that ?

 

Thanks requinix !

It's probably somewhere in /etc/apt[.d].

 

So you didn't install anything other than with yum?

apt list --installed
is empty?

Hi requinix, 

 

I uninstalled the php and apache and reinstalled using only yum as suggested by you and that cleared the warning related to the libs in the error_log. Thanks !!

 

However, the original problem still remains !! If I just echo out "Hello World", it displays correctly on my secure site ! But if I try and do a small bit of code as in #1, shown below again for convenience

<?php
 $sl = "astha12ah";
 sayname($sl);

 function sayname($n){
        $len= mb_strlen($n, 'UTF-8');
        echo $len;
    //  echo strlen($n);
        echo "<br>";
        echo "<br>";
        echo $n;
        return;
 }

?> 

it simply gives an HTML 500 error. The error_log has no errors, warnings or notices. 

 

Does changing to a secure (HTTPS) site change the error logs too ? If so, then maybe I am looking up the wrong ones at /var/log/httpd/. Else I am not sure what do do from here to try and debug this.

 

Thanks for any inputs !!

Check the PHP configuration used with Apache. You at least display_errors=off, so set error_log to somewhere appropriate, restart Apache, and try again.

 

But the problem is probably a missing mbstring.

Depends on the configuration. It could. Personally I wouldn't use a separate configuration for the two.

 

If so, then maybe I am looking up the wrong ones at /var/log/httpd/.

You have php-fpm installed, which works differently from a regular Apache module. Now you need to look at its configuration to see what it has. The logs would probably be in /var/log/php-fpm.

Hi !

 

I found out that there is another log in the same place as the error logs called ssl_error_log and that confirms that indeed the mb_strlen is an undefined function in index.php.

 

So what lib needs to be installed now ? Strangely i was not getting any of these problems earlier and this started when I changed to the secure HTTPS protocol.

 

Thanks !

Ok I got it, sudo yum install php56-mbstring

 

This installs the right lib. 

 

Thanks !
