How to install php-imap for Fedora 39

I would need to be able to install php-imap for my Fedora 39 installation. I can’t seem to get the package installed, and I haven’t found a solution. If not I’ll have to move my work to a Debian based environment.

php-imap relies on libc-client which is a dead thing (since 2007).

Nobody serious should rely on such an old library, which has been removed from Fedora 34, so imap extension cannot be built.

I recommend you use a pure PHP library instead (such as laminas/mail)

imap extension will also be removed from “php” in next version

Workaround: see remirepo (more PHP versions and extensions)

P.S. php-imap is also not available in RHEL and derivative distributions
