How to build Static version of Qt with all Build options which run with the dynamic version

  • Hello
    I made a static build of QT app tomorrow and it worked fine but when I start using it and release some of my apps to be standalone app I found a problem with the QNetworkAcessManager that it's not working when need to download something when I searched this error I found that I should enable OpenSSL in my configure.
    and as I searched I found that the options are found in the folder called config.summary which contains build options so old before I use OpenSSL in the configure it was set to no in the config.summary
    now my question is how to enable any of the build options as I need or enable them all when I make my static build as I will not each time need to use a library of QT and release to make standalone app I found that I did not configure this build option so, for example, something like Mysql is set to no and after I build the static version I found my self need it !! so should i build from first each time I realize something ?
    so what should be the solution to such a problem I want to build all QT options which is like the dynamic one that has all dlls did not need something
    Thanks in advance

    The config.opt file contains the options you used, calling /path/to/configure --redo will re-use these options plus whatever you pass after that. However depending on what options you change, you'll have to do a full rebuild.

  • I understand that but iam asking about what is the full options to use when I build the static version so it releases a complete one like the dynamic so i will not need to build it again in future
    as what happened to me today that I found that the OpenSSL is not in the configure same for Mysql
    so I should rebuild again and wait all this time to make static version which supportt the openssl then I found that I need Mysql so I rebuild
    so if there is a command which makes qt have all options when building? so I don't need to rebuild the static version again for any missing option

    No there's not. You have to enable whatever makes sense for you and also get all the corresponding dependencies.
