I compiled Phalcon using the instructions on the site, added extension = to the end of my php.ini file. I restarted the server but when I run print_r(get_loaded_extensions());

Phalcon isn't there.

I'm using nginx on Ubuntu, if that matters.

Have you enabled the extension in your php.ini configuration?

extension = /usr/lib/php5/20090626/

That is I believe the path of where the extension will be compiled in a Ubuntu box.

Restart the server after that or in your case php_fpm :)

Thanks that worked. How did you know it would be compiled there? – user1587033 Sep 22 '12 at 22:41
The key is that you are using Ubuntu which I am too. You can always see the path of where the extension is installed at the output of the compilation process. I believe it is when issuing sudo make install – Nikolaos Dimopoulos Sep 22 '12 at 23:04
