Is there a tutorial on how to install APC (Alternative PHP Cache on Debian 5.0).
Using the dot.deb package will also allow you to use the latest version of PHP.
For the main Dotdeb repository, depending on your distribution (lenny/oldstable or squeeze/stable), add these two lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list file (choosing a mirror near you) :
(Optional) If you’re running Debian 5.0 “Lenny” and you want PHP 5.3 instead of the default PHP 5.2, add these two additionnal lines too :
You don’t need this if you’re running Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” : PHP 5.3 is the default branch
Then fetch the appropriate GnuPG key
cat dotdeb.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
You should now be able to use the Dotdeb packages with apt-get (or dselect, or aptitude as well…)
To install APC:
Try installing it via aptitude: aptitude install php-apc Afterwars you can configure it in /etc/php5/conf.d/apc.ini Have a look at php-apc for configuration options.
Otherwise you could use "pecl" to install it via pecl install apc. Prequisite is to have the php5-dev module installed.
