I have php 5.3.6 and ubuntu. I want to install APC.

When I do the $ pecl install apc, I eventually get an error:

In file included from /tmp/pear/temp/APC/apc.c:44:0:
/usr/include/php5/ext/pcre/php_pcre.h:29:18: fatal error: pcre.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make: *** [apc.lo] Error 1
ERROR: `make' failed

When I try to do $ yum install php-pecl-apc I always get error: No package "php-pecl-apc" available

I tried doing a $ yum clean all, but it did not make a difference.

I am not sure how to proceed. What do you suggest?

    Ubuntu and Yum? That's... unusual. – Ladadadada Dec 11 '11 at 23:20

yum install pcre-devel . You need the Perl-compatible regular expression library development header files

You mention Ubuntu, might as well use apt-get install libpcre3-dev

  • I just get yum install pcre-devel There are no enabled repos. Run "yum repolist all" to see the repos you have. You can enable repos with yum-config-manager --enable <repo> when I try this. – kwoxer May 8 '16 at 18:21
