Manually install stable version of APC in CentOS

First you’ll want to make sure you have all required packages installed:

yum install php-pear php-devel httpd-devel pcre-devel gcc make

Most tutorials will now say to use PECL to install APC:

[[email protected] ~]# pecl install apc
downloading APC-3.1.13.tgz ...
Starting to download APC-3.1.13.tgz (171,591 bytes)

But that actually installs the latest version, even if it’s in beta (in this case it is), so we’ll actually manually download and install it.

Download APC

You can go and look up the latest, stable version here: http://pecl.php.net/package/APC. Once you find it, which happens to be APC 3.1.9 at this time, copy the link in the downloads column and download it:

[[email protected] ~]# wget http://pecl.php.net/get/APC-3.1.9.tgz

Extract APC

After it has downloaded, we extract the archive file and move into the newly created directory:

tar -zxf APC-3.1.9.tgz
cd APC-3.1.9

Compile APC with phpize

Next we’ll compile the extension using phpize:

[[email protected] APC-3.1.9]# phpize
Configuring for:
PHP Api Version:         20041225
Zend Module Api No:      20050922
Zend Extension Api No:   220051025

Configure APC with php-config

We will need to look up where your php-config lives (most likely /usr/bin/php-config):

[[email protected] APC-3.1.9]# whereis php-config
php-config: /usr/bin/php-config /usr/share/man/man1/php-config.1.gz

Next we’ll configure the extension. Note to update the path, should it differ, at the very end of the first line:

Recompile APC with make

Now we need to recompile the extension using make:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Libraries have been installed in:
   /root/APC-3.1.9/modules

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
     during execution
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
     during linking
   - use the `-Wl,--rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
   - have your system administrator add LIBDIR to `/etc/ld.so.conf'

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and ld.so(8) manual pages.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Installing shared extensions:     /usr/lib64/php/modules/
Installing header files:          /usr/include/php/

Enable APC in PHP

This completes the installation and all we have left to do is set APC up. The next step is to create an ini file in /etc/php.d:

cd /etc/php.d
vi apc.ini

And paste the following into it:

; Enable the extension module
extension=apc.so

; Options for the APC module version >= 3.1.3
; See http://www.php.net/manual/en/apc.configuration.php

; This can be set to 0 to disable APC.
apc.enabled=1

; The number of shared memory segments to allocate for the compiler cache.
apc.shm_segments=1

; The size of each shared memory segment, with M/G suffixe
apc.shm_size=64M

; A "hint" about the number of distinct source files that will be included or
; requested on your web server. Set to zero or omit if you're not sure;
apc.num_files_hint=1024

; Just like num_files_hint, a "hint" about the number of distinct user cache
; variables to store.  Set to zero or omit if you're not sure;
apc.user_entries_hint=4096

; The number of seconds a cache entry is allowed to idle in a slot in case this
; cache entry slot is needed by another entry.
apc.ttl=7200

; use the SAPI request start time for TTL
apc.use_request_time=1

; The number of seconds a user cache entry is allowed to idle in a slot in case
; this cache entry slot is needed by another entry.
apc.user_ttl=7200

; The number of seconds that a cache entry may remain on the garbage-collection list.
apc.gc_ttl=3600

; On by default, but can be set to off and used in conjunction with positive
; apc.filters so that files are only cached if matched by a positive filter.
apc.cache_by_default=1

; A comma-separated list of POSIX extended regular expressions.
apc.filters

; The mktemp-style file_mask to pass to the mmap module
apc.mmap_file_mask=/tmp/apc.XXXXXX

; This file_update_protection setting puts a delay on caching brand new files.
apc.file_update_protection=2

; Setting this enables APC for the CLI version of PHP (Mostly for testing and debugging).
apc.enable_cli=0

; Prevents large files from being cached
apc.max_file_size=1M

; Whether to stat the main script file and the fullpath includes.
apc.stat=1

; Vertification with ctime will avoid problems caused by programs such as svn or rsync by making
; sure inodes havn't changed since the last stat. APC will normally only check mtime.
apc.stat_ctime=0

; Whether to canonicalize paths in stat=0 mode or fall back to stat behaviour
apc.canonicalize=0

; With write_lock enabled, only one process at a time will try to compile an
; uncached script while the other processes will run uncached
apc.write_lock=1

; Logs any scripts that were automatically excluded from being cached due to early/late binding issues.
apc.report_autofilter=0

;This setting is deprecated, and replaced with apc.write_lock, so let's set it to zero.
apc.slam_defense=0

Restart Apache

Last, but not least, restart Apache:

[[email protected] ~]# service httpd restart
Stopping httpd:                                            [  OK  ]
Starting httpd:                                            [  OK  ]

If you download a copy of apc.php and upload it to your web root, you’ll be able to test that APC is working properly.
