I need sqlite3 support in PHP & PERL using the sqlite3: interface rather than PDO. Natively PHP5.2.x doesn’t support this interface on the current version of MyBook Live firmware. I decided to risk upgrading php from the squeeze repository since lenny doesn’t have it and sqlite3: support is now present and working, but rather as expected the web UI is now partially broken on certain functions and the logs complain about pdo.inc.
There’s a websit http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/mybook-live referring to editing php.ini or upgrading cakePHP to fix the problem following an upgrade but the example given doesn’t seem appropriate and in any case doesn’t work.
I suppose if needs be I can restore the firmware and compile a native version of php but I’m not sure how far that may lead with needing php & perl versions of sqlite3.
So does anyone have any working solutions to upgrading php?
