Greetings fellow developers,
I am trying to use composer for a PHP project of mine on a development server I recently booted up and for some reason I am unable to. I successfully installed composer, however, when I try to run the require command I get the following error:
[email protected]:/var/mypersonal/index# composer require php-amqplib/php-amqplib PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib/php/20151012/php_openssl.dll' - /usr/lib/php/20151012/php_openssl.dll: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0 Do not run Composer as root/super user!

Installation failed, deleting ./composer.json.
I'm assuming it's something to do with the PHP warning I recieve right when running the composer require command but no google search results lead me to the correct direction.
Additionally, I have provided my /etc/php/7.0/cli/php.ini file incase of an error in that file.

You can use function get_loaded_extensions to see if
bcmath modul is loaded. Or in terminal
php -m or
php -m | grep name_of_the_modul
You can install it depending on what OS you are using:
sudo apt install php7.0-bcmath
yum install bcmath
Debian - jessie
apt-get update apt-get install php7.2-bcmath
work like a charm :)
For PHP 7.1, the following worked for me:
sudo apt install php7.1-bcmath
For any version in php Centos use
This solution worked for me
yum install php-bcmath
PHP will take the default version installed in the machine, search for that package and install it.
Delete the file composer.lock file if that is already created and then run again,
If you run
it will update whatever default packages are installed in composer.json which might create problem for you.
check your php version by type:
you will see something like this:
PHP 7.2.9-1+ubuntu16.04.1 ....
sudo apt install phpX.X-bcmath where X.X is php version, so for this ^ example it will be
sudo apt install php7.2-bcmath
after this check if module existed or not by type
php -m | grep bcmath
php 7.2 if you have other version just change it accordingly
sudo yum install php72-bcmath
sudo apt install php7.0-bcmath
hope this will fix the problem.
sudo apt install php-bcmath
Strange thing here
Some month ago I have installed all PHP version in the same manner. In here are the 4 identically configured version of php: 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, with the same extensions ( when this was made possible ).
The strange thing was that bcmath is present for all php version excluding 7.1.
In the solution search I arrive here in this question, where the logic's things was confirmed installing bcmath, but in my Linode Debian 9 server the command apt install php7.1-bcmath doesn't work, with 3 error messages;
- E: Impossible to find the package php7.1-bcmath
- E: Impossible to find some package with glob "php7.1-bcmath"
- E: Impossible to find a package with the regular expression "php7.1-bcmath"
The goals no meet with any combination of tips and trick, refreshing apt cache, change Debian's mirrored server, installing yum, so on...
After some tentatives I had an illumination: modificating of /etc/apt/sources.list enabling the default Linode repository, then after an apt update (with no solution in the immediate), I have restored the /etc/apt/sources.list commenting out the Linode mirror sources again. Magically, after the new apt update the command now are working.
By this I confirm: apt install php7.1-bcmath is the right command, but your Debian can need a kick in the ass
For this problem we should use sudo apt install php-bcmath
I tried below package and it worked in Php version 5.6
yum install php56w-bcmath
