PostgreSQL – AppServ 2.5.10 y PHP 5.2.6

Para todos los usuario que instalan su ambiente de desarrollo web usando APPSERV, les comento que con la versión 2.5.10 se genera un problema al tratar de habilitar PostgreSQL.

Generalmente para habilitar el uso de postrgres con PHP, solo basta con quitar el comentario en el archivo PHP.ini(ubicado en C:\Windows) en la línea:




verificamos que el archivo php_pgsql.dll se encuentre en la carpeta php5/ext.

Si se verifica con phpinfo(), debería aparecer que postgresql ha sido activado, este no es el caso con AppServ 2.5.10 bajo Windows. Esto se debe a que a partir de la version 5.2.6 de PHP, la extensión php_pgsql.dll requiere el uso de la librería libpq.dll para poder funcionar.

La libreria libpq.dll  se encuentra en:


Para poder configurar la carga dinámica de esta librería de tal forma que funcione con php_pgsql.dll, se debe agregar al fichero de configuración Apache httpd.conf.

Otra forma de hacer que funcione es reemplazando la versión de php_pgsql.dll con la versión anterior, que viene empaquetada en PHP 5.2.5 para Windows.

Desde el siguiente enlace se podrá descargar solo el archivo DLL
Luego de reemplazar php_pgsql.dll con la version descargada desde el enlace superior, reinicie el servicio APACHE.

#Zend Framework and PHP Certifications

There are so many things to do and learn.There’s much to be done, my social site(pretty big project,.lots of fun coding)..since this year is ending I need a new years resolution, this being said..My new year resolution is to get the #Zendframework and #PHP Certification..I should start by passing the PHP 5.3 exam and then go for the Zendframework one. I’ve been looking at some training materials, it’s not complicated but there’s a lot to be learn..Let’s start working on it…
Here’s the link for those who are interested on getting those certifications.

Registration form- #zf (finished)

so far so good, the registration form is finished, worked a little bit with #validators and #decorators, pretty cool..had some problems getting the errors and customizing the errors messages, did another intensive search on google and found the solution, it was pretty simple..
this is part of my source code:

$u_email= new Zend_Form_Element_Text(‘email’);
->setAttrib(‘size’, ‘25’)
->addValidator(‘NotEmpty’,true,array(‘messages’ => array(‘isEmpty’ => ‘custom message’)))’

as we can see one way of doing this is to pass a third parameter into addValidator,this third parameter is an array containing the new message and the property to which it will be applied.
with a simple call to getMessages() we can get the messages of the form in case a field is flag as invalid.

Main Project

i’m continuing my work on a social site developed entirely with #ZF, it’s my first big project with this framework, the final goal is to join every social network, twitter,facebook,flicker,etc. into one single site from which the user can interact with all of their friends…

its a simple idea, i’m sure thousands or probably millions of people had thought about’s easier said than done.. going on to my third week of far so good..
