When making call to sodium_crypto_pwhash_str I get the following in my Apache error log file.
PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function sodium_crypto_pwhash_str()
My php version, as noted is 7.3.17 running on an Amazon EC2 instance.
My php-info() does not return any relevant libsodium information other than module author info:
Sodium Frank Denis
Given the above author information references a module author am I supposed to enable the sodium module? If the answer is yes is it referenced in the php.ini file? Such as:
What am I missing here?
Am I not supposed to use the documented function sodium_crypto_pwhash_str?
Am I supposed to use some other method of accessing the desired functionality?
Yes normally it's included in PHP 7.2+ but when you use the AWS EC2 instances this is a bit minimalistic and not everything is included.
Here you can see that you have to enable it during the compiling with
--with-sodium[=DIR]. So you can compile it on your own or you try another distro to get it from your package manager or you use another lib to make it work.
