Issues with SOAP and DOMDOCUMENT - Cannot get them enabled?

Hi All!

I am having trouble enabling SoapClient and Domdocument on a droplet.

Everything seems to be installed, all the modules are there, its active in php.ini but in the back end of the site that is complaining about it I still get;

Your server does not have the SoapClient class enabled - some gateway plugins which use SOAP may not work as expected.

Your server does not have the DOMDocument class enabled - HTML/Multipart emails, and also some extensions, will not work without DOMDocument.

Ive tried installing php-xml - php7.0-xml, php-dom… everything…

Tried installing as root, removed, then tried installing as a non root user with sudo, nothing.

Its ubuntu 14.4 with php7

This is the phpinfo on the server, replace the bits/spaces in the URL as appropriate etc

hXXp:// bell wat

Really struggling with this guys!

This says that;

php5.6-xml php7.0-xml php-xml

Are already installed?

Any ideas?

OK, I ran;

sudo apt-get install php7.0-soap

Which installed soap and it got ticked off the list.

Now just Domdocument

I tried;

sudo apt-get install php7.0-xml

No joy :(

Was already installed - I removed and re-added though but no joy :(

Its as if everything I need is installed but the site isnt picking it up.

So very bizarre.

The PHP soap client is packaged separately from the XML and DOM packages.

sudo apt-get update;
sudo apt-get install php-soap;
sudo service apache2 restart;

Running these will install the soap client and should resolve the error.
