I’ve received many requests to add several modules to my documentation set of installing PHP. I’ve untill now avoided it because it is a lot of work to do this for all seperate versions. Not even mentioning solving issues and supporting all your questions.

I’ve now documented how to add GD (which was one of the most requested modules) and mcrypt (required for a safe use of phpmyadmin).

I’ve documented each module as a seperate installation and it will tell you which parameters to add to the normal PHP installation to make it work. In this manner everyone can select the modules he or she wants without the modules that aren’t needed.

Read more about it on their respective pages:

I hope you like this method of documention this.
