Re: [PLUG] Apache2 zip support

My mistake, I was accidentally looking at two systems. Both http php info
and php -v report the 5.2.0 version.

I would download and compile a new version but m concern is breaking
something. Is there a way to determine how my current version of php was
compiled? With what switches?

The original error was in wordpress. I was trying to use an auto upgrade
plug-in and when I tried to enable the module it did a check which gave
back an error that zip support was not enabled and to contact my server.

That is all is said, zip support. I thought there might be some wordpress
users on this list.
