Install PHP imap on DirectAdmin server with CustomBuild

| 15:04:21 10.11.2022

Here is a new way to install the PHP imap extension on DirectAdmin servers. That's a native method without using third party solutions, which will work the same good on CentOS, AlmaLinux, CloudLinux, Debian and Ubuntu.

Run as root in bash-console:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/
./build update
./build set_php imap yes
./build php_imap

See the key-point you should control. First:

# ./build set_php imap yes
Changed imap option from no to yes

The option should change to "yes". It might be already "yes" though.

A successful installation of the extension should print the following:

Installing shared extensions:     /usr/local/php81/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20210902/
find . -name \*.gcno -o -name \*.gcda | xargs rm -f
find . -name \*.lo -o -name \*.o -o -name \*.dep | xargs rm -f
find . -name \*.la -o -name \*.a | xargs rm -f
find . -name \*.so | xargs rm -f
find . -name .libs -a -type d|xargs rm -rf
rm -f      modules/* libs/*
rm -f ext/opcache/jit/zend_jit_x86.c
rm -f ext/opcache/jit/zend_jit_arm64.c

Restarting php-fpm73.
Restarting php-fpm74.
Restarting php-fpm81.
imap PHP extension has been installed successfully.

Check the line: "imap PHP extension has been installed successfully".

And a final control:

# php -i | grep imap
Protocols => dict, file, ftp, ftps, gopher, gophers, http, https, imap, imaps, mqtt, pop3, pop3s, rtsp, smb, smbs, smtp, smtps, telnet, tftp
imap.enable_insecure_rsh => Off => Off

That's it.
