Is there a way to disable PHP gettext extension in my ubuntu instalation? I need this for testing purposes. gettext.ini is not present in conf.d folder and I don't know where to look.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04
Thank you in advance!
Since the gettext support comes as a pre-compiled extension (the ones that you can find .ini files for are dynamically loaded), you can disable it by re-compiling PHP. That basically means that you need to de-install your current PHP installation, download PHP sources from PHP.net and compile it from scratch. This is a good tutorial about it:
Another option you have is to simply disable the gettext functions. You can do that by using
directive in your /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini file
That however will not disable gettext support.
