This will increase cpu and RAM usage when these are used. Furthermore optware packages are not very reliable I found out in the past.
I've tested with dynamic php extensions before, CPU and MEM usage is almost the same. I used optware packages to do less compiling, didn't have issues with it so far, hope will not
or will have to compile a lot more.
I don't know what the lacie firmware has on board as locales , you could try to install those as well.
I had earlier version of owncloud installed, i don't remember having an issue with locale before, this time OwnCloud8 is requesting locales. What should i compile/Install to satisfy that?
Be are that when you install lacie upgrades that probably you need to repeat all the setup you made.
php installation is on "opt", and i just change /etc/lighttpd.conf to use the new php, when i upgrade i can just pull things back with no need to recompile.
Also bear in mind that your combination of webserver and pphp 5.4.7 will not support large file (> 2GB) for that you need use the latest php like 5.5.7 (and use the right ldflags for large file support)
Would you mind to explain this more, why lighttpd with php-5.4.39 can handle files larger than 2 GB ?
Haven't noticed that before, I tested with Ajaxplorer and it cannot open directories with files bigger than 2GB, but original php-3.4 works using same php.ini, what is the reason here?
I investigated the locale issue with Owncloud, files will be lost if they contain an unsupported character, hence i just bypassed that check.
@fvdw: Remaining issue now is (files bigger than 2GB), which doesn't exist with the firmware php-5.3.4, currently i am compiling php-5.6.7 if that will resolve the issue. If you know a better workaround i would like to keep 5.4.39 because i have another webapp which would fail to run on php-5.6.7. but if this will be the only solution i can sacrifice that.
update: recompiling with "-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64" hope that fixes it
