comment Install php extensions on ubuntu
Some extensions will leave an ini file in /etc/php5/conf.d that needs to be merged into the main ini. To do this you normally use php5enmod and php5dismod to enable and disable the extension's config. For example, if I need to enable the MongoDB extension I would use php5enmod mongo. Using these commands means you never have to mess with sym links or have to manually edit your main ini.
