  Extension trouble
Posted by gert holtoft on Sep-04-2021 17:53
Hello Mr. Kwan

I've run into ChartDirector (CD) setup issues, I think I've done all the right things (see below). I also use CD on an ubuntu 18.04 / php7.2 and have used the same setup as in it, I am a happy user of CD on the 18.04 and would rather use CD on my Raspberry.I have tried both the 32 and 64 bit version.
Can you kick me in the right direction

with kind regards
Gert Holtoft

PHP configuration file location : "/etc/php/7.3/apache2/php.ini":

PHP extension directory : "/usr/lib/php/20180731"
contains all files from lib incl. fonts and they are made readable for apache2.

The error:
Error Loading ChartDirector for PHP Extension

It appears this PHP system has not loaded the ChartDirector extension by using an extension statement in the PHP configuration file (typically called "php.ini"). An attempt has been made to dynamically load ChartDirector on the fly, but it was not successful. Please refer to the Installation section of the ChartDirector for PHP documentation on how to resolve this problem.

Error Log

The version and type of PHP in this system does not support dynmaic loading of PHP extensions. All PHP extensions must be loaded by using extension statements in the PHP configuration file.

Hi Gert,

The Linux editions of ChartDirector for PHP in our download page are for the "i386/i686" and "x86_64" architectures. For your case, the Linux architecture is "armv7l". So they would not work.

Currently, we have some custom builds for various ARM CPU architectures. See:

For your case, the "armhf" architecture should be compatible with "armv7l".
