    I installed xenForo recently and i'm getting the following errors -

    XenForo 1.2.4 - Errors
    The following errors occurred while verifying that your server can run XenForo:

    • The required PHP extensions for XML handling (DOM and SimpleXML) could not be found. Please ask your host to install these extensions.
    Please correct these errors and try again.

    How do I fix this? I'm a VPS box. Also, I'm using CentOS 6 32bit Minimal

    @Jake Bunce please help me :(

    Hey, thanks for the reply.
    When I run both of those commands, it gives me the following -
    yum install php-xml5 gave me this -

    [notTelling ~]# yum install php5-xml
    Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
    Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
    * base: ftp.osuosl.org
    * epel: mirrors.cat.pdx.edu
    * extras: ftp.osuosl.org
    * updates: ftp.osuosl.org
    Setting up Install Process
    No package php5-xml available.

    Error: Nothing to do

    Both of them did it practically.

    As the error text states: "Please ask your host to install these extensions."

    If you are not sure how to do it yourself, contact your host.

    If your host isn't responding and you are on a managed server, you may want to consider another host with faster responses. They're the ones best positioned to help as they would have access to the server and know how it's configured.

    The given commands are what you'll see mentioned in many places (http://smartwebdeveloper.com/centos/install-the-php-dom-extension-on-centos for example).
