I've installed the sphinx extensions via pecl on ubuntu 8.04

however, after restarting apache, my php program says that SphinxClient hasn't been found I looked at phpinfo() output and its not there.

I've looked at where extension_dir is set to and the is there

any idea why it won't load?

php version is PHP Version 5.2.4-2ubuntu5.10

ok found the answer

turns that instead of adding:

under "Dynamic Extension" in the php.ini,

you need to create a file in /etc/php5/cgi/conf.di called sphinx.ini with the line

now works
