[PHP][Web Apps] PHP xsl extension not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    im trying to install magento 2 as a web app on the azure platform

    my issue is when i do it complains that it needs the php_xsl extension to complete the installation

    i have found a few guides on the net on how to enable this by adding a key and value in the app settings and uploading the .dll to a bin folder on the server.

    but no matter what i do with this i cant get this extension working to install magento

    any advice would be great

    many thanks

  • I had a testing project on Azure Web Apps, and it seems that Azure Web Apps environment has contains the extension dll file `php_xsl.dll` but don't enable this extension in `php.ini`.

    To enable the extension on Azure Web Apps, you can try the following steps:

     1. Add an App Setting to your Web App with the key PHP_INI_SCAN_DIR and value `d:\home\site\wwwroot\ini`
     2. Create an ini file in `d:\home\site\wwwroot\ini` (you can simply create a folder named `ini` in your root directory of you application) called `extensions.ini`
     3. Add configuration settings to the `extensions.ini` file using the same syntax you would use in a `php.ini` file. For example:
    extension = php_xsl.dll
     4. Restart your Web App to load the changes, you can use `phpinfo()` to check the extensions.

    Or you can create two source sample files at and then use the test code snippet at to test the extension installation.
