When running a Dedicated Hosting server, you may need to add PHP Modules. This allows you to add more features, or specific PHP modules as requested by users on your Dedicated server. In this tutorial, we will show you how to add PHP Modules to a Dedicated Hosting server. This is done from the command line using EasyApache.

Adding PHP Modules on Dedicated Hosting

  5. Choose your version of PHP from the list, then click Next Step.
    PHP Version Selection
  6. You will see a (short) list of PHP modules, choose the ones you want to install (in my tests, I am selecting Mod Bandwidth). You can also click the Exhaustive Options List for more choices. Once you have made your selections, click Save and Build.
    Select PHP Modules for Dedicated
  7. A Confirm Build popup will come up and ask if you want to "Recompile Apache and PHP now?" Choose Yes.

  8. You will then see a warning about terminating the build process, read through and choose I Understand
