  1. >Install PHP5 modules
    >debian4r2:~# aptitude install php5-mysql php5-pear php5-snmp php5-posix php5-gd

    This is not php5-pear, it’s php-pear,

  2. In the prerequites you forgot to mention php5-ldap, it leads to a minor warning during the Centreon PHP Extension component installation.


  3. I want install centreon on Debian etch 4.0r3 but it don’t find package php5-posix and libnetsnmp-perl.

    My apt source list are :

    deb file:/miroir/mirror/ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ etch main
    deb-src file:/miroir/mirror/ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ etch main

    deb file:/miroir/mirror/security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib
    deb-src file:/miroir/mirror/security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib

    Why I don’t find there ?

    Sorry for my bad english

  4. Salut à tous,

    le paquet libnetsnmp-perl n’existe pas en fait il ya une faute, c’est le paquet libnet-snmp-perl.
    Mais normalement si vous avez suivi la procédure ce dernier est déjà installé. Pour ce qui est de php5-posix, celui ci n’exite pas dans les depot debian de base.


  5. Bonjour,

    La commande pour installer pear ne marche pas.
    Je ne comprend pas trop cette commande, pouvez vous m aider ?

    Et concernant php5-posix, je ne trouve pas ce module pour debian, pouvez vous m orienter ?

    Merci d’avance
