How to enable Spell Checker?
« on: February 22, 2005, 01:41:30 PM »

Before redirecting me to other post I have to say I read through most of spell-checker related posts but am still confused....

I can’t get the spell-checker working I have it enabled in the Admin section, contacted my host provider and requested them to install aspell, I got the following reply from them “php wont recompile with aspell ... we have tried it on 2 boxes aspell is installed, but it wont install as a php module”.

My question is what would be needed for hosting to add/do so I could use this feature or what more do I have to do to get the spell-checker working.

If something more has to be done by the hosting company could someone please post step-by-step instruction so I can redirect them to this topic.

I have the following files uploaded to my website for test purpose.


Thank you

Tell your host to recompile php with '--with-pspell' in the configuration command.

They may need to install the "aspell-devel" rpm, etc.
