Hi @mohamedabdulaziz,

In the App Platform to install packages, you’ll need to update your cmposer.json file. Here is the exact docs on how to do that:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/reference/buildpacks/php/

For example:

  1. {
  2. "require": {
  3. "php": "7.0.*",
  4. "ext-imap": "*"
  5. },
  6. }

Hi there,

You can do that by adding the following to your composer.json file:

{
  "require": {
    "ext-imap": "*"
  }
}

For more information on how the PHP buildpack works I could suggest the following documentation:

Hope that this helps!

Best,

Bobby
