dbm support

P: n/a
i have a windows setup where i am trying to use the extension that
enables db4 handlers for dbm. my php version is 4.4.6.
in my extensions directory i have a couple of dlls (php_db.dll and
php_dba.dll) but i don't have php_dbm.dll.

how do i go about enabling db4 handling support through dba extension
for my version of php.

thanks in advance

I assume here you are using the DBM-style abstraction layer functions,
not the old DBM functions which are deprecated (yet available for your
version of PHP).

In order to use DB4, you should compile PHP with the option --with-
db4. For DBM, the option is --with-dbm. You must already be compiling
it with --enable-dba anyway, which is required.

Note that there are known problems when compiling with both DB4 and
either DB2 or DB3.
