PHP configure: error: Package requirements (libzip >= 0.11) were not met

When compiling php-7.4.6 on Linux, run the command ./configure --prefix=/opt/php-7.4.6 --enable-fpm --with-curl --with-zip --with-pdo-mysql --with-mysqli, but the following error occurs.

checking for libzip >= 0.11... no
configure: error: Package requirements (libzip >= 0.11) were not met:

No package 'libzip' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBZIP_CFLAGS
and LIBZIP_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.


It requires libzip-devel package.

1. Install manually

On the web page, find the libzip-devel version that matches your operating system, download and install it.

Note that for some Linux operating systems, such as in Centos 7, the libzip / libzip-devel package on the official CentOS x86_64 repository is still 0.10, which does not meet the compilation requirements, so it can only be installed manually. We can use other libraries, such as remi Repository, libzip5-1.6.1-1.el7.remi.x86_64.rpm and libzip5-devel-1.6.1-1.el7.remi.x86_64.rpm, download and run.

$ sudo yum install ./libzip5-1.6.1-1.el7.remi.x86_64.rpm
$ sudo yum install ./libzip5-devel-1.6.1-1.el7.remi.x86_64.rpm

2. With command line

Ubuntu / Debian

sudo apt-get install libzip-dev

RHEL / CentOS 8

sudo yum install libzip-devel
