I'm trying to get OAT to work on an Ubuntu box 12.04.3 LTS. Foolishly I had hoped that the packaged software in the informix distribution would work out of the box.
it doesn't. the Apache/PHP world shipped with the SW fails on the missing SSv2_method and I haven't found a cure for that one.
Exploring the alternative, namely to do a clean install of Apache2/PHP5 also fails, simply because dso_install.so (on UNIX, my dear IBMers dynamically linked libs are not using extension *.dll as written down in the installation guides...) is not up-to-date. Makes some sense, but puts me in front of the alternative to either build dso_install.so myself on my Ubuntu box or to find the matching dso_install.so.
The error message from "php -m" is:
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: pdo_informix: Unable to initialize module
Module compiled with module API=20100525
PHP compiled with module API=20090626
These options need to match
in Unknown on line 0
I spare all the details of figuring out things on Ubuntu with regards to PHP5 and Apache2 - which is nowhere similar to what IBM writes up in
any advice how I can get this stuff to run without having to recompile loads of stuff? after all, we're in the year 2013 and getting used to simple installs (thanks MSFT, GOOGLE, Apple)
