30.12. Set up PHPLib

To be able to run Webmail IMP on your Linux server; PHPLib, a toolkit development of Web applications for PHP developers software must be installed. To install PHPLib, follow the simple steps below:

These are the package(s)

PHPLib Homepage:,
You must be sure to download: phplib-7.2b.tar.gz

        [[email protected] ] /# cp phplib-7.2b.tar.gz /home/httpd/
        [[email protected] ] /# cd /home/httpd/
        [[email protected] ] /httpd# tar xzpf phplib-7.2b.tar.gz

Move to your web server's DocumentRoot, and create a /home/httpd/php directory by executing the following commands:
        [[email protected] ] /# cd /home/httpd/
        [[email protected] ] /httpd# mkdir php

Copy the contents of the PHPLib distributions php directory into the php directory that you created in your DocumentRoot:
        [[email protected] ] /# cd /home/httpd/phplib-7.2b/php/
        [[email protected] ] /php# cp * /home/httpd/php/
        [[email protected] ] /php# cd /home/httpd/
        [[email protected] ] /httpd# rm -f phplib-7.2b.tar.gz
        [[email protected] ] /httpd# rm -rf phplib-7.2b/

Important: We remove the tar archive and phplib-version directory of PHPLib once we are finished copying its php directory into the new php directory we created in our DocumentRoot.
