extension_dir = "/usr/lib64/php/modules:/home2/my_site/apps/lib/php"

and at the bottom of the php.ini file I have

Stupid question, but has the apache instance been restarted? (or PHP CGI if compiled like that) If so, what are the errors in apache logs? – Pierre-Yves Gillier Jul 8 '10 at 10:25

/etc/init.d/apachectl restart
