PHP and SysV shared mem, semaphores, etc


I wanted to know if there’s a way to enable the PHP IPC capabilities for my domain or if it’s not possible on DreamHost.

And if not… why not??? :stuck_out_tongue:

What are you trying to do with shared memory/semaphores? More to the point, what other process are you trying to share memory or semaphores with? Are you trying to do mutex-style locking across multiple PHP instances? If so, there are probably better ways. I’d probably start with flock() on a file somewhere…
