Using Ubuntu server 10.4, I apt-getted php-apc

Where is the apc.php file that I'm meant to copy?

Thanks!

Accourding to the packages.ubuntu.com page about php-apc the file can be found compressed here /usr/share/doc/php-apc/apc.php.gz.

If you don't want do look online you can query the list of files installed by the package managment system by using a command like dpkg -L apc.php.

Anyone can share the code for that apc.php file instead? Dotdeb does not seem to have included that file in their package. –  Pineapple Under the Sea Apr 26 '13 at 0:46
    
@WearetheWorld, you could always download a .deb file that does include that, and simply extract the files from .deb. See serverfault.com/a/88522/984 A .deb is an ar archive that usually conatains a couple tar.gz files. –  Zoredache Apr 26 '13 at 0:52
    
Yeah that's what I did haha! –  Pineapple Under the Sea Apr 26 '13 at 2:22
    
On Ubuntu i had to use dpkg -L php-apc. –  DanMan Jul 17 '13 at 14:20

find / -name apc.php* 2>/dev/null

"Find, within /, resources matching apc.php*, and discard stderr."

E.g. this may return /build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/APC-3.0.19/apc.php

I fail to see the sense to piping the output of find to grep in this instance, since find will only return names that contain the searched-for string. –  tylerl Jul 31 '10 at 8:01

Otherwise there's "Permission denied" for files that you cannot read. –  Ben Aug 3 '10 at 23:21

This doesn't work for Ubuntu where apc.php comes gzipped. though find / -name 'apc.php*' would have. –  Ry4an Apr 13 '11 at 15:32
    
Where permissions errors are sent to STDERR, use find / -name apc.php* 2>/dev/null –  Steve Clay Jul 12 '12 at 21:12
    
...or you could always run find with sudo and there'd be no need to bother with the whole dev/null malarkey. –  Matt Fletcher Jul 7 at 14:19

I came here looking for this file after installing APC on CentOS with PEAR. After tracking it down with Ben's find suggestion, I thought I'd post its path in case others end up here:

/usr/share/pear/apc.php

From the README.Debian

  1. Viewing statistics and tunning your cache

APC come with a script called apc.php. This script provides detailed information about your cache. In Debian this script is in /usr/share/doc/php-apc. Copy or symlink the file to your docrot and access it with you browser. If you install the php5-gd package you will also be present with graphics. In order to understand the information and use it to tune you cache refer to the APC documentation at: http://php.net/apc

This file was located in /usr/share/doc/php-apc

If nothing else works, you can download it directly from PECL by hand:

cd /tmp
wget http://pecl.php.net/get/APCu -O - | tar xz --wildcards apcu*/apc.php
mv apcu*/apc.php apc.php
rm -r apcu*/
# mv apc.php /wherever/you/want/apc.php
