PHP API, PHP Extension, Zend Extension Build and "outdated" dates
When viewing phpinfo() after a fresh build of PHP I saw dates on the following sections that did not match the date I built PHP from source: - PHP API - PHP Extension - Zend Extension - Zend Extension Build The dates were 4(!) years back and all the same, so I thought something may be wrong with the build directories. WRONG! The dates are OK. To check if the dates are up-to-date, go to PHP source directory (the root when the phpXXXXX.tar.gz file is extracted to and look into Zend/zend_modules.h. Find this line: #define ZEND_MODULE_API_NO 20081109 The date there should be the same as on phpinfo(). Same thing about "wrong" extension directory, which are padded with non-zts-non-debug-200081109 etc. It's correct... for some reason.
