Determining installed software...

P: n/a
I'm creating a web based installer for a software project I'm part of
and would like to know if there is a way to programatically determine if
certain Apache and PHP modules are already installed. Does anyone know
if this is possible aside from exec'ing a 'find' to search for the
modules on the system?

Thanks!

For PHP you can use 'function_exists(...)'. Try RTFM - the section on Apache
for apache modules.
