PHP Question

installing PHP APC extension on windows

I want to install the APC extension for PHP. I've got to this page and I'm a little stuck.
I've downloaded a file from here, which gives me a APC-3.1.9.tgz file.
I've extracted the file. However from the page I've mentioned above, I'm given the impression I need to load a .dll file.

I'm lost and confused, what should I be doing?


  • OS: Windows Vista

  • Server: Apache

  • PHP: 5.3.5


Answer

From http://www.php.net/manual/en/apc.installation.php

A DLL for this PECL extension is currently unavailable. See also the building on Windows section.

In other words: no easy way on Windows
