Compling with PECL

First, you need install PEAR to get the pecl command.

yum install php-pear

You also need install php-devel to get phpize.

yum install php-devel

Install httpd-devel to get the apxs command.

yum install httpd-devel

Install pcre-devel to prevent the error: ‘apc_regex’ has no member named ‘preg’.

yum install pcre-devel

Install apc.

 pecl install apc

Enable apc in php.ini.

 echo "" > /etc/php.d/apc.ini

Restart httpd service.

Compiling with phpize

If PECL is not an option, you can also do it by phpize.

First, you need download the apc source from Assuming you have extracted the extention to /path/to/ext/apc.

cd /path/to/ext/apc
make install

After the installation, will be put into PHP extension directory.

Following the similar way, you can also install memcache, pdo and other PECL packages.
