I am in the process of trying to get mysqli on heroku to run my php application. I know this can be done using custom buildpacks, but I am stuck.
I have forked the canned heroku php buildpack and have started digging through that and I think I need to make an adjustment to the 'bin/compile' file.
Do I need to host and compile my own php package similar to how americastestkitchen does or is there something I am missing beside the detect, compile, and release files?
My Forked Buildpack: https://github.com/travstoll/heroku-buildpack-php

Thanks in advance for pointers in the right direction.
