Makefile sqlsrv.la Error 1 Ubuntu 22.04


If you are getting this error while trying to install Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL server

sudo pecl install sqlsrv 
sudo pecl install pdo_sqlsrv

you should do the following:

First:

Inspect this folder /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ and verify that the following file exists: libltdl.la

Second:

If the file does not exist, just run the following command to create a blank file:

touch /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libltdl.la

Try to run the pecl command again

sudo pecl install sqlsrv
sudo pecl install pdo_sqlsrv

Third:

If the issue still persists, create a new file and copy the following content to it:
https://www.apt-browse.org/browse/debian/jessie/main/amd64/libltdl-dev/2.4.2-1.11+b1/file/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libltdl.la
and try to install the sqlsrv and pdo_sqlsrv again.
then verify that you can see the pdo_sqlsrv module by running:

php -m
