With the help of Webserver optimization guide, I was able to reduce the server load and improve website performance. But then PHP also loads lot of modules as extensions. I would like to know if there’s any command that will list all modules that are enabled with PHP? I’m using CentOS Linux and PHP 7.0
Yes, there’s a command to list all the modules loaded by PHP. Some of the modules would have come with PHP, and some you would have installed.
#php -m apc apcu bz2 calendar Core ctype curl date dom exif fileinfo filter ftp gd ... ...
Using pipe ( | ) and grep command, you can search for particular module.
php -m | grep gd
In the above example will grep module named gd.
It’s possible to list and view all PHP modules via phpinfo() function as well. To do that, create a PHP script with a call to phpinfo().
Copy & paste the below code.
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
Browse info.php to view all the module information.
Well, you will have to review all the modules loaded by Apache web server and remove unwanted ones to improve security.
