I have a Centos 6.6 x86_64 vps cloud server with WHM and cpanel. It contains easyapache installed in it and working fine. php sites are working fine with it. I have installed PostgresSQL 9.3 in the server via ssh.

Now when I transfered project to the server, I am not able to connect to the my postgres database as it says php extension php_pgsql is not installed in the server.

I checked through WHM (easyapache update option) to find that php_pgsql is installed and selected. But when I give: php -m in command-line through ssh it doesn't show php_pgsql means the service is not installed.

Since Cpanel is installed I am not able to install the extension via yum using yum install php-pgsql* saying the package is not found.

To my assumption the problem is that I didn't use the /script/installpostgres script provided by cpanel to install postgres server. I didn't want to install that because I need the version 9.3 of postgres which is not provided by the cpanel as it support only the version given by the linux distro for that release.

Also from https://features.cpanel.net/topic/support-postgres-93-and-above_2 I got to know that cpanel is not going to support postgres-9.3

Is there a way by which I can connect Postgres 9.3 that i manually installed to php or Is there any way by which I can install postgres 9.3 with php support through cpanel.

Thanks, Vivek

  • The package is named php-pgsql, not php_pgsql. And why you can't install it via yum? Have you try to download and install it via rpm? – Romeo Ninov Jun 3 '15 at 18:35
  • yes, i tried via rpm install and shows a lot of dependency problem – NINJA Jun 3 '15 at 18:38
  • Have you tried with yum? – Romeo Ninov Jun 3 '15 at 18:39
