Please note that this article is considered legacy documentation because Fedora 23 has reached its end-of-life support.

Pre-Flight Check

Step #1: Install XCache

As a matter of best practice we’ll update our packages with:

sudo dnf -y update

Now we’ll install XCache and any required packages with the following command:

sudo dnf -y install php-xcache xcache-admin

Step #2: Verify the Extension is Available

You can verify that the extension is available with the following command:

php -m | grep XCache

That will output results similar to:

[root@host ~]# php -m | grep XCache
XCache Cacher
XCache Coverager
XCache Optimizer

Listing the PHP version with “php -v” should now also include information about XCache:

[root@host ~]# php -v
