Project Description

I have a project which is lagged on a single element, the PHP software does not have SOAP enabled. I have been over this with my hosting company [url removed, login to view] and they have passed me the following information. Basically I need someone to come in and install and enable SOAP so I can move forward.

You don't need root access to install SOAP. However you do need to
install a new version of PHP with the --enable-soap option.

Dreamhost servers run PHP in CGI mode. Because of this PHP settings
cannot be changed by modifying the .htaccess file. In order to change the
PHP configuration you must modify the [url removed, login to view] file directly. There are
instructions on how to set this up here.

[url removed, login to view]

In some cases simply changing the settings isn't enough. For example if
you need to install additional modules to PHP then you would have to
compile an entirely new version of PHP.

[url removed, login to view]

These types of installations are allowed but not supported by Dreamhost.
We cannot help you complete the installation. If you have any questions
about any of this then please let me know.
