I have a staging server. I have installed php5.3, 5.4, and 5.5 on it. Today I tried to install XCache 3.1.0 on it with PHP 5.4.28.

First, I recompiled the PHP 5.4.28 with more features. So noted below:

1) Install additional required dev packages

yum install gmp gmp-devel

2) Compile and install php 5.4.28

cd php-5.5.12
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/php54 \
    --with-config-file-path=/etc/php54 \
    --with-config-file-scan-dir=/etc/php54/php.d \
    --with-libdir=lib64 \
    --with-mysql \
    --with-mysqli \
    --enable-mbstring \
    --disable-debug \
    --disable-rpath \
    --with-bz2 \
    --with-curl \
    --with-gettext \
    --with-iconv \
    --with-openssl \
    --with-gd \
    --with-mcrypt \
    --with-pcre-regex \
    --with-zlib \
    --enable-cgi \
    --enable-exif \
    --enable-zip \
    --with-gmp \
    --enable-ftp \
    --enable-shmop \
make install

Restart Apache

service httpd restart

Then, I start to install XCache from source, the latest version of XCache is 3.1.0.

3) Download and decompress it.

wget http://xcache.lighttpd.net/pub/Releases/3.1.0/xcache-3.1.0.tar.gz
tar -xvzf xcache-3.1.0.tar.gz

4) Compile XCache based on current PHP 5.4.28 installation

cd xcache-3.1.0
./configure --enable-xcache --with-php-config=/usr/local/php54/bin/php-config
make install
cp xcache.ini /etc/php54/php.d/xcache.ini
service httpd restart

Then reload the phpinfo page and get following information.


And XCache web interface:
