Issues installing eBot

Hello Guys,

i want to install the eBot ( press EN top right section).
Everything works fine but when i run

php boostrap.php

It checks for PHP Compatibility only the "pthreads" extension is missing.

Can somebody help me to get it working?

Do I really have to compile it?
Can somebody explain me how to do it with my digital ocean vps? (or can i use an more powerful local vm?)

My issue on github.
(the first advice does not help me)

Thanks for any useful tip.

    Thanks but I tried it a bit earlier getting this:

    pecl/pthreads requires PHP (version >= 7.0.0RC2), installed version is 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.14
    No valid packages found
    install failed
  • so.... update php.........

  • But PHP 7 is not really stable or is it?

    Is there no way to use the pecl installation with the 2.0.10 version:

  • pecl install pthreads-2.0.10 works.

    But I have to enable PHP ZTS

    checking checking for ZTS... configure: error: pthreads requires ZTS, please re-compile PHP with ZTS enabled
    ERROR: `/tmp/pear/temp/pthreads/configure' failed

  • what does it says when you:

    apt-cache search pthreads | grep php

    no output.

    I think i need to recompile php with ZTS "enabled" but i have never done this before....

  • Don't they provide a Debian install package that does all the setup for you?
    Just use that and your good to go :)

    There is some configuration that needs to be done when it's installed but it's nothing major IIRC. It's been a while since I installed it.

  • A simple google could of helped you..

    "I haven't found any proper instructions on how to install pthreads in linux, so I'll leave the steps I followed:

    Required libraries

    sudo apt-get install gcc make libzzip-dev libreadline-dev libxml2-dev \
    libssl-dev libmcrypt-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev lib32bz2-dev

    Download PHP

    cd /usr/local/src

    ( e.g. wget )


    tar zxvf php-.tar.gz
    (e.g. tar zxvf php-5.5.8.tar.gz )


    cd /usr/local/src/php-
    ( e.g. cd /usr/local/src/php-5.5.8 )

    ./configure --prefix=/usr --with-config-file-path=/etc --enable-maintainer-zts


    make && make install
    ( make -j3 && make -j3 install) -> Faster building

    Copy configuration

    cp php.ini-development /etc/php.ini

    Install pthreads

    pecl install pthreads
    echo "" >> /etc/php.ini

    Check installation

    php -m | grep pthreads"

  • Can i do this on a different server with much more power? Afterwards i get an .deb right?

    No, you will have to do this on the target server. You will not get a .deb afterwards, just a working local installation.

    For those who care:
    You can now find me at or

  • Take a look at this.
    I used instructions from this link to set up my ebot installation on a VM.
    If you followed the instructions from the website to set up ebot-csgo you will have issues with nodejs packages (The instruction on webpage are outdated.)

    If you want to I can share my VM with everything set up, though there are issues with stability which are most likely related to ebot itself and not the installation.
