A PHP APC module packaging caveat

For any­one try­ing to build the PHP APC mod­ule, beware. The ver­sion avail­able as a Gzip’d TAR archive is miss­ing a key file, so pull the tagged release out of the PHP repos instead. 

Save your­self the wasted 20 minutes I spent debug­ging the issue! 


Hello. I’m Sasha Ger­rand, a soft­ware developer. I design and cre­ate high volume trans­ac­tional tech­no­logy (along with other things). I write code in Open Source pro­gram­ming lan­guages. I do things with data sources and trans­ac­tional sys­tems. I use vir­tu­al­ised machines for my server envir­on­ments. I spend a fair pro­por­tion of my days liv­ing in the shell. I like POSIX com­pli­ant oper­at­ing sys­tems and FOSS products.
