I have install php5-interbase but when I see into my phpinfo();, there is no inter base extension.

Please help me.

  • Did you restart the server after install ? – George Udosen Dec 30 '16 at 10:13

Simply restart apache

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Thank you for @strom that trying to help me about the issue.

Finally i got the answer. Here it is :

Try this:

sudo updatedb 
locate interbase.ini

Should show it located at /etc/php5/mods-available

locate interbase.so

Edit interbase.ini and change extension to match the path to mcrypt.so, example:


Now this:

Verify that new files exists here (they should be auto created from the issue above)

ls -al /etc/php5/cli/conf.d/20-interbase.ini
ls -al /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/20-interbase.ini

Otherwise do the following

Create symbol links now

sudo ln -s /etc/php5/mods-available/interbase.ini /etc/php5/cli/conf.d/20-interbase.ini
sudo ln -s /etc/php5/mods-available/interbase.ini /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/20-interbase.ini

Restart Apache

sudo service apache2 restart

i found this solution in : Mcrypt extension is missing in 14.04 server for mysql
