Install APC in cPanel server

You can install APC (Alternative PHP Cache) in your cpanel server using the following steps:

# pecl install apc

Then add the extension in the php.ini file.

You can get the php.ini file by

# php –ini

Add the following line to it.


Then, retart apache service and you are good to go.

I encountered the following error while installation.

“checking whether the C compiler works… configure: error: cannot run C compiled programs.”

I made it working by the following:

# mount -o remount,exec,suid /tmp

Complete the installation and don’t forget to remount the tmp directory with noexec, nosuid options after the installation.
