If you try on newer versions of php (like 5.5 and above) it is not working with pecl, so you need to do it manually. Get package, untar it and then apply this patch:

then to compile it with

phpize
./configure
make
make install

You could do make test also, but some tests are broken.

FreeBSD users BEWARE, this extension will not compile and install with the "pecl install paradox" command.

The configure script fails because it tries to use a library (libdl.a) that is available by default in Linux but not on FreeBSD.  I had to alter the configure script and install the package manually.

I have reported this on the package page as a bug, but there does not seem to be any movement in maintaining this package, so I am posting this here for anyone having trouble trying to install this package on FreeBSD.

This was my experience in Ubuntu distro. I install everything from console. Type:

    sudo aptitude install php-pear
    sudo aptitude install php5-dev
    sudo aptitude install pxlib1
    sudo aptitude install pxlib-dev

    sudo pecl install paradox

Display your php config by using the phpinfo() and
find the path shown at "Scan this dir for additional .ini files"

In my case I found "/etc/php5/apache2/conf.d"

At this path create a file name "paradox.ini" with this content:

    extension=paradox.so

Then type "php --info | grep paradox" to verify the configuration is read properly and there are no errors.  You should see something like...

     /etc/php.d/paradox.ini,
     paradox

service httpd restart. In my case:

    sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

You will need 'pecl' and 'phpize'.  Make sure the php-pear (for pecl) and php-devel (for phpize) packages are installed.

Download pxlib package from pxlib.sourceforge.net.  expand/config/make/make install.  No tricks there.

pecl install paradox

Edit php.ini or, preferably, create /etc/php.d/paradox.ini to contain:

     extension=paradox.so

'php --info | grep paradox' to verify the configuration is read properly and there are no errors.  You should see something like...

     /etc/php.d/paradox.ini,
     paradox

service httpd restart
