Freeswitch phpmod esl

Just upgraded php on CentOS 5.8 To find your version type:
cat /etc/redhat-release

I needed a more current version of PHP that supported json encoding/decoding without having resort third party libraries. Plus it would be more aligned with my development environment on my notebook.

I used the following link on how to upgrade old versions of CentOS to more current PHP/MySQL.

The upgrade was smooth except that ESL for PHP stopped working. Following error when trying startup PHP.

PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: ESL: Unable to initialize module
Module compiled with module API=20050922
PHP    compiled with module API=20090626
These options need to match
 in Unknown on line 0

Doing the following should have resolved the issue but it didn't work.

cd /usr/local/src/freeswitch/libs/esl
make clean
make phpmod
make phpmod-install

When I removed the old version of PHP it must have removed one of the dependencies. The compile error message indicated that I need to install libtermcap

yum install libtermcap.i386
yum install libtermcap-devel

The libtermcap.i386 was already installed but the devel wasn't.

After this make completed properly and everything was back to normal.

Note: The above make commands are correct. The "make phpmod-install" is the way it should be done.
If you do "make phpmod install" it will fail. This can be easily confused if you are doing things really fast.
