Deleted opt/ folder with file

I accidentally deleted my opt/ folder where the file /opt/rh/httpd24/root/etc/httpd/modules/ is located. However after reinstalling php72 I could not manage no restore this file and nextcloud won’t run.

Do you use RHEL or CentOS? If yes read:
(repeat the installation guide)

If not post your operation system and version. Thanks.

yes I did the reinstall, it doesn’t help

Ok. Please post more details. Are you use RHEL or CentOS and which version?

Have you “Symlink the PHP 7.2 Apache modules into place” ?

Sorry. I use Debian GNU/Linux with the standard php-versions from repository. No problems here.

i am using centos7, symlink are working, it the file which is missing

Please “cut-and-paste” the errors and logs. Thanks.

There is no folder module

Sorry. I am not a RHEL or CentOS user.

Here you can see the files are in package “rh-php72” (scroll to Files):

Perhaps you can reinstall the packages (read ) or unzip/decompress the rpm-file and manually copy them back to /opt/… Sorry i am also not a rpm-expert.

Ok I installed Centos on a virtual drive, and installed php72 there, from there I coul copy the modules directory in my opt/ folder. I really don’t get it why this is not working erasing php72 and the reinstalling

Sorry. I do not know it, too. 1h ago i thought no linux operation system would install package files to /opt . Because of “Testing” and not the normal version of php? I do not know it.

But here my hint: make backups including /opt . I never backuped /opt on Debian GNU/Linux because there are no from my package system installed packages.
