Runing Win2003, both IIS and Apache, PHP 5.2.4 with PECL

Can anyone tell me please, how to install php_svn.dll?
I have added this extension to php.ini.
phpinfo() doesn't show it...
So I did
php -c php.ini m
This gave me many errors that some dll files was missing. Fine.
I downloaded some zip files and finaly I got no more errors.
I tried phpinfo() again. The svn module is still not reported... Anyway I gave it a shut and tested it with different functions like svn_checkout()
The result? Error, Undefined function....

So, after all readme files and google search, I still cant make it work.

What is the trick? It can't be this hard to install it. Can it?
I dont want to make an SVN server, just connect to an svn server.

Please, let me know.

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PECL itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PECL, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PECL.

can you try the php-windows mailing lists

If it doesnt work, it's a bug gives an Error 404 what to do...? Install IRC or a news reader
Is't there a help forum for this stuff?

I'll give up...
Thanks anyway

are you trying to connect to a svn 1.4 repository? the dll from pecl4win doesn't work with those ( it is build against subversion-1.3.1 for apache 2 (*not* 2.2). do you have all the required dlls (intl3_svn.dll, libdb43.dll, LIBEAY32.dll, SSLEAY32.dll, libapr.dll, libaprutil.dll) for exactly this subversion version available (in the path) to your php? did you check your php error log?

Hi Axel,

All good questions.
Apache 2.2 was also tested. I did tried to connect to sourceforge for it's svn repository.
I did checked all logs to see what the problems was and made all the necessary actions to reduce the errors. So, all the dll's was installed eventually.
Not an easy task to install the svn extension.
This was 4 months ago and I just don't remeber what exacly happend, sorry.
So later, I gave up on this extension and rewrote the php script to use the external svn command insted to check out svn reposotories. That works fine on both Windows and Linux.

Maybe we can change the status to 'closed'?
