Once run the below coded file in your server. It will display the all loaded modules in the server.

PHP Class:

class Loaded_modules {

  public $Modules; // public variable

  //function Loaded_modules()
  function __construct() {
     ob_start(); // Stop output of the code and hold in buffer
     phpinfo(INFO_MODULES); // get loaded modules and their respective settings.
     $data = ob_get_contents(); // Get the buffer contents and store in $data variable
     ob_end_clean(); // Clear buffer

      $data = strip_tags($data,'<h2><th><td>');
// Keep only the items in the <h2>, <th> and <td>  tags
// Use regular expressions to filter out needed data
// Replace everything in the <th> tags and put in <info> tags
     $data = preg_replace('/<th[^>]*>([^<]+)<\/th>/',"<info>\\1</info>",$data);

   // Replace everything in <td> tags and put in <info> tags
   $data = preg_replace('/<td[^> ]*>([^<]+)<\/td>/',"<info>\\1</info>",$data);

   // Split the data into an array
   $vTmp = preg_split('/(<h2>[^<]+<\/h2>)/',$data,-1,PREG_SPLIT_DELIM_CAPTURE);
    $vModules = array();
    $count = count($vTmp);
   for ($i=1;$i<$count; $i+=2) {
 // Loop through array and add 2 instead of 1
    if (preg_match('/ <h2>([^<]+)<\/h2>/',$vTmp[$i],$vMat)) { // Check to make sure value is a module
      $moduleName = trim($vMat[1]); // Get the module name
      $vTmp2 = explode("\n",$vTmp[$i+1]);
      foreach ($vTmp2 AS $vOne) {
       $vPat = '<info>([^<]+)<\/info>';
         // Specify the pattern we created above
       $vPat3 = "/$vPat\s*$vPat\s*$vPat/";
       // Pattern for 2 settings (Local and Master values)
       $vPat2 = "/$vPat\s*$vPat/";
       // Pattern for 1 settings
       if (preg_match($vPat3,$vOne,$vMat)) {
       // This setting has a Local and Master value
         $vModules[$moduleName][trim($vMat[1])] = array(trim($vMat[2]),trim($vMat[3]));
       } elseif (preg_match($vPat2,$vOne,$vMat)) {
       // This setting only has a value
           $vModules[$moduleName][trim($vMat[1])] = trim($vMat[2]);

       $this->Modules = $vModules;
       // Store modules in Modules variable
  // List all php modules installed with no settings
  public function listModules() {
    foreach($this->Modules as $moduleName=>$values) {
// Loop through modules
 // $moduleName is the key of $this->Modules, which is also  //module name
      $onlyModules[] = $moduleName;
    return $onlyModules; // Return array of all module names
  } // End function listModules();


Creating object to that class and call the methods of that class.

$modules = new Loaded_modules(); // Start the moduleCheck class
echo '
print_r($modules->listModules()); // List all installed modules
echo '< /pre>';
