The need for speed, PECL to the rescue!

August 25, 2010 | In: pear, pecl, PHP

Sometimes when a web application is getting a huge traffic, a developer always thinks of the best way to handle it. Good thing there’s PECL , collection of C-based library that’s designed for the matter.

To use it, first you need to install it :

$ sudo pecl install [package_name]

Where possibe [package_name] can be viewed on the said site.

In LAMP settings, APC is very essential so we will install it via:

$ sudo pecl install apc

Just press enter when prompted with questions.
