PHP moduleDescription
bcmathBinary Calculator for arbitrary precision mathematics which supports numbers of any size and precision represented as strings.
calendarThe extension contains functions to manage events scheduling and converting between different calendar formats.
coreThis is a filter that makes it possible to run arbitrary PHP code to modify the attributes of a user.
ctypeThe functions provided by this extension check whether a character or string falls into a certain character class according to the current locale.
curlPHP 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.
dateThe PHP date() function is used to format a date and/or time.
domThe DOM extension allows you to operate on XML documents through the DOM API with PHP 5.
exifThe extension enables PHP to interact with Exif metadata info included into audio, video files and pictures.
fileinfoThis 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.
filterThis 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.
ftpThe extension which enables and simplifies file transfer to and from hosting with PHP in use.
gdThis extension provides functionality for handling graphics directly from PHP scripts.
gmpGmp stands for GNU Multiple Precision Arithmetic Library (GMP). It is a library that allows you to do mathematical operations on signed integers, rational numbers, and floating point numbers, and also helps to perform complex mathematical operations on big numbers.
hashMessage Digest (hash) engine. Allows direct or incremental processing of arbitrary-length messages using a variety of hashing algorithms.
iconvThis 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.
imagickThis extension helps to work with images via ImageMagick software, which simplifies opening, editing, and saving images.
intlInternationalization 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.
jsonAllows work with text data interchange format with parser built on JSON_checker.
libxmlThese 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.
mbstringProvides multi-byte specific string functions that help you deal with multibyte encodings in PHP.
mysqliThis extension gives user access to functionality provided by MySQL server 4.1 and above.
mysqlndMysqlnd stands for MySQL Native Driver - this extension enables MySQL low-level communication protocol to provide other PHP functions with access to MySQL database.
opensslThis module uses the functions of OpenSSL for generation and verification of signatures and for sealing (encrypting) and opening (decrypting) data.
pcreThe 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.
PDOPHP 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_mysqlDriver implementing access from PHP to MySQL.
pdo_sqliteThis extension implements the PHP Data Objects (PDO) interface with access to SQLite databases.
pharThe 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.
posixThe extension provides a set of methods and functions to interact with POSIX system calls.
readlineThe readline function implements an interface to the GNU Readline library. These are functions that provide editable command lines.
redisThis is a data structure store used as a database, cache, and message broker which improves system speed and scalability.
reflectionPHP 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.
sessionSession 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 website.
SimpleXMLThe 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.
soapSoap stands for Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), and this extension can be used for managing Web services - consuming and providing them.
socketsThe extension simplifies interaction with sockets - a way of establishing a connection between applications to interact.
sodiumThis extension is a cryptographic library used for encryption authentication, storing passwords safely, sharing secret messages, digital signatures etc.
SPLThe 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().
sqlite3The extension enables access to SQLite 3 - a lightweight disk-based database with non-standard SQL language.
standardThe standard set of classes.
tokenizerThe 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.
xmlXML (eXtensible Markup Language) is a data format for structured document interchange on the Web.
xmlreaderThis is a syntactic analyzer for XML. It acts as a cursor moving along the document stream and pauses at every node on the way.
xmlwriterThis extension is non-cached, one-direction way for generating streams of files for XML data.
Zend OpCacheThe Zend OpCache provides faster PHP execution through opcode caching and optimization. It improves PHP performance by storing precompiled script bytecode in the shared memory.
zipThis extension enables you to transparently read or write ZIP compressed archives and the files inside them.
zlibThis 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).
(disabled but can be enabled along with PHP 8.1 upon request)
ioncube_loader is used to encrypt PHP files and protect software written using the PHP programming language from being viewed, changed, and run on unlicensed computers. Please note that ioncube_loader is not supported with PHP 8.0.
