There is an article about APC being installed on Dreamhost:
Someone stated that they actually installed sucessfully APC with Dreamhost.
As you know APC will dramatically increase your site performance and ease the server also. Read more here:
I compiled APC on DreamHost with no problems… I have my own PHP version compiled also with FastCGI enabled.
However, I don’t see APC info in the phpinfo file.
This is what I did so far:
[server]$ mkdir src
[server]$ cd src
[server]$ wget http://pecl.php.net/get/APC-3.0.10.tgz
[server]$ gunzip -c APC-3.0.10.tgz | tar xf –
[server]$ cd APC-3.0.10
[server]$ ./configure –enable-apc –enable-apc-mmap –with-php-config=/home/dreamuser/local/bin/php-config
[server]$ make install
[server]$ cp /home/dreamuser/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20050922/apc.so /home/dreamuser/local/lib
In php.ini, I added the following lines, under Dynamic Extensions:
extension = “apc.so”
apc.shm_size = 16
I should also define the --with apxs=/path/here option, but I don’t know where is located the Apache server on cerritos.
If anyone managed to install it succesfully, please post your steps here.
