Using SAP RFC SDK for SAP Logon via php via Host Provider

I'm trying to do this. I have moved all the files up to one directory available via /home/sapsuper/public_html/SAPRFC by a host provider. When I do "phpize", that runs fine with just a couple of messages re: some function being recursively called.

But when I do the ./configure, I get messages which seem to imply that the php.ini system settings are not being overwritten with my own php.ini settings in the SAP directory:

checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out

checking whether the C compiler works... yes

checking whether we are cross compiling... no

checking for suffix of executables...

checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes

checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes

checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed

checking whether gcc and cc understand -c and -o together... yes

I have the includes in /home/sapsuper/public_html/SAPRFC/include and the extensions in /home/sapsuper/public_html/SAPRFC/includes. The directory itself is /home/sapsuper/public_html/SAPRFC and here Is a list of the files it contains:

My pertinent php.ini settings are:

include_path = ".:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/home/sapsuper/public_html/SAPRFC/include:/home/sapsuper/public_html/SAPRFC/extensions" ;

extension_dir = ".:/home/sapsuper/public_html/SAPRFC/extensions"

extension=saprfc.so

Anyone done this before? What am I doing wrong?

    Hi,

    you need RFCSDK (can be downloaded from SAP Service Market Place) for compilation and run of saprfc. Standard paths where must be RFCSDK placed are: /usr/sap/rfcsdk /usr/local/rfcsdk /opt/rfcsdk . You can change this paths in the config.m4 file. You also have to shared library librfccm.so from RFCSDK in the some system library directory (/etc/ld.so.conf).

      Sorry to bother you, but there is not so much information about saprfc and Linux set-up, and I can't wait to use your php module...

      Hum, could you be more specific? Maybe I m missing something here....

      I m trying to run SAPRFC on a Linux box (<b>Ubuntu with PHP 5.2.1</b>)

      I m using the rfcsdk in /usr/sap/rfcsdk/

      Everything looks fine while I run ./configure... except it say:

      Checking dynamic linker characteristics... cat: /etc/ld.so.conf.d/*.conf: No such file or directory

      Buy the Way:

      I did changed the php.ini, adding the lines: in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini

      ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

      ; SAPRFC Extension ;

      ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

      ;http://saprfc.sourceforge.net/

      ;

      extension=saprfc.so

      ;

      and the php module : /etc/php5/conf.d/saprfc.in

      1. configuration for php SAPRFC module

      extension=saprfc.so

      I also took care of my /etc/services

      ##> All those are set-up for SAP RFC

      ##

      #

      1. SAP services

      sapdp00 3200/tcp

      sapdp01 3201/tcp

      ...

      I also tried to fix the <b>/etc/ld.so.conf</b>

      1. Begin /etc/ld.so.conf

      include /etc/ld.so.conf.d/*.conf

      /usr/local/lib/*

      /usr/sap/rfcsdk/lib/librfccm.so

      1. End /etc/ld.so.conf

      And run ldconfig to update it... But this is the first time I hear about this file... maybe I m doing it wrong... Or maybe it doesn't work with php 5.2.1 ... or I just should move to OpenSUSE 10.1 ? All our production servers are under Debian... it will be a big fuss
