PHP module Description
APCu APC User Cache
bcmath Binary Calculator for arbitrary precision mathematics which supports numbers of any size and precision represented as strings
cgi-fcgi A bridge from CGI to FastCGI
core This is a filter which makes it possible to run arbitrary PHP code to modify the attributes of a user
ctype The functions provided by this extension check whether a character or string falls into a certain character class according to the current locale
curl PHP supports libcurl, a library created by Daniel Stenberg, that allows you to connect and communicate with different types of servers with different types of protocols
date the PHP date() function is used to format a date and/or time
dom the DOM extension allows you to operate on XML documents through the DOM API with PHP 5
fileinfo this module functions try to determine a file content type and encoding by means of analyzing certain magic bytes sequences at certain positions of the file
filter this extension filters data by either validating it or sanitizing it. This is especially useful when the data source contains unknown (or foreign) data, like user supplied input
hash message Digest (hash) engine. Allows direct or incremental processing of arbitrary length messages using a variety of hashing algorithms
iconv This module contains an interface to iconv character set conversion facility. With this module, you can turn a string represented by a local character set into the one represented by another character set, which may be the Unicode character set
intl Internationalization extension is a wrapper for ICU library, enabling PHP programmers to perform UCA-conformant collation and date, time, number, and currency formatting in their scripts. Requires ICU
json allows work with text data interchange format with parser built on JSON_checker
libxml These functions/constants are available as of PHP 5.1.0, and the following core extensions rely on this libxml extension: DOM, libxml, SimpleXML, SOAP, WDDX, XSL, XML, XMLReader, XMLRPC, and XMLWriter
mbstring provides multi-byte specific string functions that help you deal with multibyte encodings in PHP
mcrypt this is an interface to the mcrypt library, which supports a wide variety of block algorithms such as DES, TripleDES, Blowfish (default),3-WAY, SAFER-SK64, SAFER-SK128, TWOFISH, TEA, RC2 and GOST in CBC, OFB, CFB and ECB cipher modes. Additionally, it supports RC6 and IDEA which are considered non-free. CFB and OFB are 8bit by default
mysqli this extension gives a user access to functionality provided by MySQL server 4.1 and above
openssl this module uses the functions of OpenSSL for generation and verification of signatures and for sealing (encrypting) and opening (decrypting) data
pcre the PCRE library is a set of functions that implement regular expression pattern matching using the same syntax and semantics as Perl 5, with just a few differences
PDO PHP Data Objects (PDO) extension defines a lightweight, consistent interface for accessing databases in PHP. Each database driver that implements the PDO interface can expose database-specific features as regular extension functions. Note that you cannot perform any database functions using the PDO extension by itself; you must use a database-specific PDO driver to access a database server
pdo_mysql driver implementing access from PHP to MySQL
phar the phar extension provides a way to put entire PHP applications into a single file called a phar (PHP Archive) for easy distribution and installation.In addition to providing this service, the phar extension also provides a file-format abstraction method for creating and manipulating tar and zip files through the PharData class,much as PDO provides a unified interface for accessing different databases
readline the readline function implements an interface to the GNU Readline library. These are functions that provide editable command lines
reflection PHP 5 comes with a complete reflection API that adds the ability to reverse engineer classes, interfaces, functions, methods, and extensions.Additionally, the reflection API offers ways to retrieve doc comments for functions, classes, and methods
session Session support in PHP consists of a way to preserve certain data across subsequent accesses. This enables you to build more customized applications and increase the appeal of your web-site
SimpleXML The SimpleXML extension provides a very simple and easily usable toolset to convert XML to an object that can be processed with normal property selectors and array iterators
SPL the Standard PHP Library (SPL) is a collection of interfaces and classes that are meant to solve common problems. SPL provides a set of standard data structures, a set of iterators to traverse over objects, a set of interfaces, a set of standard Exceptions, a number of classes to work with files, and it provides a set of functions like spl_autoload_register()
standard The standard set of classes
tokenizer The tokenizer functions provide an interface to the PHP tokenizer embedded in the Zend Engine.Using these functions you may write your own PHP source analyzing or modification tools without having to deal with the language specification at the lexical level
xml XML (eXtensible Markup Language) is a data format for structured document interchange on the Web
xmlreader This is a syntactic analyzer for XML. It acts as a cursor moving along the document stream and pauses at every node on the way
xmlwriter This extension is non-cached, one-direction way for generating streams of files for XML data
Zend OpCache The Zend OpCache provides faster PHP execution through opcode caching and optimization. It improves PHP performance by storing precompiled script bytecode in the shared memory
zip This extension enables you to transparently read or write ZIP compressed archives and the files inside them
zlib This module enables you to transparently read and write gzip (.gz) compressed files, through versions of most of the filesystem functions which work with gzip-compressed files (and uncompressed files, too, but not with sockets)
