Sometimes you need to check what PHP modules are enabled on your server without going through all the hassle of creating a web page with a phpinfo(); in it.
Like what any good Geekysaur would do, you could just make use of the handy-dandy Linux command line to get what you’re looking for!
# To see a list of all active modules.
# To filter the list for a specific module.
php -m | grep <module_name>
# To enable a PHP module.
sudo php5enmod <module_name>
# And of course, to disable a PHP module.
sudo php5dismod <module_name>
That’s all there is to it! Did this work for you? Do you have a better way of doing this? Help your fellow Geekysaurs by hitting us up in the comments below!
