I believe there's a compilation problem with php and snmp.  I've tried many different ways to go about trying to get it to work, but no matter, I end up with the snmp functions being undefined.

for some reason, no matter what happens, the snmp_add_var, snmp_get_quick_print, and snmp_set_quick_print are undefined - this is if I compile it static.  If I compile snmp as shared, it's worse.

I have no idea what the problem is to tell you the truth, but I have not only tried many different things, but so have others, and I have found no solutions on the net.  It would be great if someone could get this to work.  If I find the solution I'll email it to someone.  But until then, maybe someone else can find it eaiser (and quicker) than I.

Below are the symbols lists.  The first is if snmp is compiled with php, and the second is if snmp is compiled as a shared module:

What version of ucd-snmp do you have?
How did you install / configure /compile it?
What was the configure line for PHP?


 [2001-08-19 17:17 UTC] admin at networkessence dot net
ucd-snmp ver 4.2.1.

The configure line for ucd-snmp was ./configure --with-openssl=/home/install/openssl-0.9.6b
This was done so the proper files would be included for -lcrypto.

For php, i tried:
./configure --enable-ucd-snmp-hack --with-snmp=/home/install/ucd-snmp-4.2.1
./configure --enable-ucd-snmp-hack --with-snmp=shared,/home/install/ucd-snmp-4.2.1
./configure --enable-ucd-snmp-hack --with-snmp=shared

Performing make clean and rm ./config.cache between each configure/compile.

When compiling snmp into php (first one), snmp_add_var, snmp_get_quick_print, and snmp_set_quick_print are undefined (seen on prev post).  When compiling as shared, it was worse (seen on prev post).

With all three, if I try using an snmp function, they are all undefined:
<? snmpget('host', 'community', 'system.SysContact.0'); ?>

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: snmpget() in /path/to/test.php on line 1

And here is a little more info.  If I check symbols in (after compiling ucd-snmp), 

[root .libs]# nm ./|grep snmp|grep U
0001d8ec t snmpv3_scopedPDU_header_build
0001dc2c t snmpv3_scopedPDU_header_rbuild
00026a44 T snmpv3_scopedPDU_parse

And as can be seen below, the functions (snmp_add_var, snmp_get_quick_print, snmp_set_quick_print) in the ucd-snmp compiled .so are there:

[root .libs]# nm ./|grep snmp_add
00009484 T snmp_add_null_var
000292f8 T snmp_add_var
[root .libs]# nm ./|grep snmp_get_quick
0002a04c T snmp_get_quick_print

[root .libs]# nm ./|grep snmp_set_quick
0002a024 T snmp_set_quick_print

This is my second attempt at this.  I waited till a couple versions of PHP came out to try it again, so I tried this about 6 months ago (i think) with snmp vers 4.2 and had pretty much the same troubles.

Try this configure line:

./configure --with-snmp=/usr/local --with-openssl=/home/install/openssl-0.9.6b

If you didn't give --prefix for SNMP configure,
it will install the in /usr/local

If you did give the prefix, use the same in PHP configure
in --with-snmp option. 

And have you added the necessary lines into /etc/
If you put stuff elsewhere than default paths, you ALWAYS
have to tell where the libs are. Remember to run /sbin/ldconfig too

./configure --with-snmp=/usr/local --with-openssl=/usr/src/openssl-0.9.6b didn't work, BUT

./configure --with-snmp=/usr/local --with-openssl (no dir specified) worked!

Specifying a directory for --with-openssl= seems to break -lcrypto.

It is now working.

So it looks like the steps are
compile snmp
./configure --with-openssl=/path/to/openssl-vers
make | make install
then compile php as such:
./configure --with-snmp=/usr/local --with-openssl --enable-ucd-snmp-hack

Thanks for the help!  I will post note on manual of my experiences and hope I save someone the hassles I went through.
