What is the recommened way to install ASA PHP 5.3.10 on Ubuntu 12.04 64bit?

I've tried the following:

  • Sourcing before apache2 starts is not an option, source is not a recognized command, simply executing the script works only in shell mode, but only for the current user
  • Tryed with /etc/ where I put /opt/sqlanywhere12/lib64, now I'm getting an other error:

PHP Warning: PHP Startup: in Unknown on line 0

How can I solve this problem?

Can you tell me, where did you put the library path configuration? .conf, .ini or something...

Which version of the PHP driver are you using? The web site that Mikel referred to has the latest version, so you should try that first, just in case it's a bug that's already been fixed.
