Why is EasyApache4 not recommending extensions when installing a new PHP version?
When installing a new PHP version through the EasyApache4 interface, this will usually offer you a choice of only installing the version or including common extensions.
This recommendation only occurs if there are common extensions installed for all active PHP versions on the system. If a PHP version was previously installed using the Only option, no extensions would be present for that version and this option will not be presented.
If you wish to have specific Extensions recommended for new versions of PHP, you will first need to ensure those extensions are installed for all PHP versions on the server.
If you need assistance with identifying which extensions are currently installed for each PHP version, please see the following article as well.
