I'm not sure if packages are covered by "ports" so apologies in
advance if I made a mistake.
I installed php5 via packages: pkg_add -r php5. The machine is
currently running 6-stable (or 6.2-PRERELEASE according to uname -a).

I am missing a very important file,, which is required by
apache. and I cannot find it.

I looked at all the files that were installed (using pkg_info -v
php5-5.2.0 > text) and and no .so files were installed.

where can I find this?

thank you.
