First of all: I only know some basics on linux, but I wanted to try out Phalcon. So I've rented a small v-server with Debian 8 and installed php7.
At the time phalcon was at version 2.1.0r and I followed the tutorials until it seemed to work. Then I've had no time to really start working on it anymore (just created the first to 2 controllers from the tutorial).
Now I do have an idea for a test project and a little time, but I've seen that Phalcon 3.0 is out.
So I went into my cphalcon folder and got the 3.0 branch via git.
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/3.0.x'.
$ cd cphalcon/
$ zephir fullclean
$ zephir compile
$ cd build/
$ sudo ./install
$ /etc/init.d/nginx restart
$ /etc/init.d/php7.0-fpm restart
For dev branches, e.g
3.0.x always use Zephir:
# PHP 5 $ zephir fullclean $ zephir build # PHP 7 $ zephir fullclean $ zephir build --backend=ZendEngine3
