I get the error below when trying to install APC via WHM PECL installer

Anyone have any idea how to fix this?

[SOLVED]APC install error

After a week I finally got it worked out. Aparently this is a common problem and I thought I would share how I got it to work since I had to cobble together different steps from different sources to get it to install.

Server set up: cPanel/WHM, Centos 5.5, with php 5.3.3

If you are trying to install APC are not able to using the WHM PECL installer then try this. APC needs to be installed from source so these instructions assume you have root access to the server using a client like putty.

login to server as root and run the following commands:

Code:
cd ~ 
mkdir setups
cd setups 
wget http://pecl.php.net/get/APC-3.1.5.tgz 
tar -xvf APC-3.1.5.tgz 
cd APC-3.1.5
phpize
./configure --enable-apc --enable-apc-mmap --with-apxs --with-php config=/usr/local/bin/php-config
make
if you get the error:
Code:
In file included from /usr/local/src/APC-3.1.5/apc.c:38:
/usr/include/php/ext/pcre/php_pcre.h:29:18: error: pcre.h: No such file or directory

/usr/local/src/APC-3.1.5/apc.c:453: error: 'apc_regex' has no member named 'nreg'
make: *** [apc.lo] Error 1
Then you need to install pcre and make sure you do this from the / directory or it will not install.
Code:
yum install pcre-devel
Again do:
Code:
make
If no errors then do:
Code:
make install
update php.ini through WHM PHP Configuration Editor. Switch to Advanced and find Section:Core Directive:extension and add this to the end of the list:
Code:
, apc.so
Then restart apache and your done. the phpinfo function should show that APC is installed

Hope this helps someone.

Just a note here, you couldn't build the WHM APC because the version the WHM was pulling from it's PECL repo that was stable at the time (3.0.19) did not support PHP 5.3.x. It wasn't until the APC 3.1 betas that PHP 5.3.x was supported.

APC is now stable at 3.1.6, has full PHP 5.3.x support, and this is the version now installed by the WHM PECL installer.

Hummm.... I have updated all my WHM/cPanel Software but I can't find APC anywhere... nor in "PHP Pecl" nor in "PHP Extensions and Applications Package"... am I missing something??

I read about APC and it's a great performance extension. Good to know PHP 6 will have it by default.

Re: [SOLVED]APC install error

Then you need to install pcre and make sure you do this from the / directory or it will not install.
Because cPanel installs its own version of pcre that it uses to build PHP, don't you run the risk of using a different version of pcre when you do this which may cause problems? Why not just find a way to use the version in /opt that cpanel is using for building apache/php ?

APC is now stable at 3.1.6, has full PHP 5.3.x support, and this is the version now installed by the WHM PECL installer.
Actually, WHM wants to install 3.1.7 which is the beta version when I try it from there. It would be nice if they didn't try to pull beta versions from the pecl repo.

Depends on your UPDATE settings, if you have preference for STABLE versions you will get 3.1.6...

Still having some dificulties here... I finally just placed "APC" in the Pecl SEARCH in cPanel and installation began but had errors with CLI, does anybody know how may I solve this?:

My PECL installer on 11.28.87-CURRENT_51188 wants to install 3.1.6. You may want to check your PECL configuration to see if it's set to pull beta/unstable releases.

Code:
12:08:[email protected]:~$ pecl config-show|grep "Preferred Package State"
Preferred Package State        preferred_state  stable

What version of PHP? The fact that phpize is throwing PHP errors tells me there may be an issue with the PHP environment.

Hi,

tried pecl install apc and got the errors as above. I then tried the suggestion yum install pcre-devel which installed PCRE again into 5.3.3 and then tried pecl install apc again, and it worked! Thanks tomdchi!

Do you have any RLimitMEM set on the server?

Code:
grep -i rlimit /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf

If you are only getting a ServerLimit not RLimitMEM, then you aren't restricted by RLimit for memory on the machine.

You are receiving a memory size allocation error, which ties into memory limits. One way to limit memory is RLimitMEM in Apache, which is one of the common reasons for that type of error message. Another reason would be a memory limit in /usr/local/lib/php.ini file:

Code:
grep ^memory /usr/local/lib/php.ini

Looks like the result is:
