Pre-Flight Check
  • These instructions are intended specifically for installing XCache, an open-source opcode cacher.
  • I’ll be working from a Liquid Web Self Managed Fedora 20 server with Apache and PHP installed, and I’ll be logged in as a non-root user. If you need more information then visit our tutorial on How to Add a User and Grant Root Privileges on Fedora 20.
Step #1: The Installation
As a matter of best practice we’ll update our packages: sudo yum -y update Then let’s install XCache and any required packages: sudo yum -y install php-xcache xcache-admin
Step #2: Verify the Extension is Available
Now verify that the extension is available by using the following command: php -m | grep XCache Your result should be: XCache XCache Cacher XCache Coverager XCache Optimizer XCache XCache Cacher XCache Coverager XCache Optimizer Listing the PHP version should now include information about XCache as well: php -v PHP 5.5.6 (cli) (built: Nov 13 2013 09:49:19) Copyright (c) 1997-2013 The PHP Group Zend Engine v2.5.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2013 Zend Technologies with XCache v3.1.0, Copyright (c) 2005-2013, by mOo with XCache Optimizer v3.1.0, Copyright (c) 2005-2013, by mOo with XCache Cacher v3.1.0, Copyright (c) 2005-2013, by mOo with XCache Coverager v3.1.0, Copyright (c) 2005-2013, by mOo
