On a 10.6.8 OSX Server system I'm trying to install PostgreSQL to test things out before we upgrade to Lion, but I can't get PHP5 to include PostgreSQL support. Here's what I've tried:


- sudo port postgresql90

- sudo port postgresql90-server

- sudo port php5 +postgresql

- inserting the line "extension=pgsql.so" into /etc/php.ini

- rebooting


Interactively, a new PHP is there and psql is there, but when I attempt to connect to a PostgreSQL database from a PHP script in a web browser I get:


PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined function pg_connect()


Doing a phpinfo() interactively in the Terminal shows the new version of PHP is there and has psql support built in. But doing this in the browser shows PHP is still at 5.3.4 and there's no reference to PostgreSQL. Doing a extension_loaded('pgsql') returns a null. Is Apache somehow built against a version of PHP without PostgreSQL?


How can I get this going?
