I'm very new when it comes to webservers. I have my own DDS but no imap installed at it. I asked my ISP to install it but they charge a lot. In my opinion it shouldn't be too much work so I started googling and came accross this article: http://www.electrictoolbox.com/install-php-imap-centos/.
It seems like i only have to execute 2 commands:
sudo yum install php-imap sude /etc/init.d/httpd graceful
I'm logged on as user 'root' to my server, this is the account they provided to me. But when I try the first command I get this output:
[root@dds ~]# sudo yum install php-imap Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * addons: mirror.oxilion.nl * base: mirror.oxilion.nl * epel: ftp.nluug.nl * extras: mirror.oxilion.nl * rpmfusion-free-updates: mirror01.th.ifl.net * rpmfusion-free-updates-testing: mirror01.th.ifl.net * rpmfusion-nonfree-updates: mirror01.th.ifl.net * rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing: mirror01.th.ifl.net * updates: mirror.oxilion.nl Excluding Packages in global exclude list Finished Setting up Install Process No package php-imap available. Nothing to do
How can I achieve to install php's imap functions?
I hope to hear from you!
Kind regards from Holland.
