How to install Phalcon PHP framework in Ubuntu linux?

Well, we have all heard about the fastest php framework out there. But how do we install it in a Ubuntu Linux machine.

Default process for any linux setup.

Steps:

1. First, we need  a few packages previously installed. To install them, issue the distro specific command in your linux terminal.

For Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install php5-dev php5-mysql gcc libpcre3-dev

For Fedora:

sudo yum install php-devel php-mysqlnd gcc libtool

For RHEL:

sudo yum install php-devel php-mysql gcc libtool

For Suse:

yast2 -i php5-pear php5-devel php5-mysql gcc

Basically, here we are installing the dev tools we require to compile and setup the Phalcon extension.

2. Get the Phalcon build using git

git clone --depth=1 git://github.com/phalcon/cphalcon.git

3. CD into the folder and issue the install command.

cd cphalcon/build
sudo ./install

4. Now, lets add the extension to our php.ini file. At the end of the file, add the below line

extension=phalcon.so

5. Restart your apache server.

sudo service apache restart

6. Check your phpinfo and you will find the Phalcon extension installed. We are good to go now.

Note: You can also install Phalcon as a debian repo which has been offered by FortRabbit at http://debrepo.frbit.com/
