pecl install apc fails on Ubuntu

published on April 10, 2011.
Heads-up! You're reading an old post and the information in it is quite probably outdated.

I was just installing APC on an Ubuntu server (what else to do on a Sunday morning?) with the standard set of commands:

sudo apt-get install php-pear php5-dev
sudo pecl install apc

but the pecl install apc died with a bunch of “/tmp/pear/temp/APC/apc.c:430: error: “apc_regex” has no member named “preg”” and similar messages. Luckily, I can use google which led me to this serverfault answer: I was missing the “libpcre3-dev” package. After doing a quick sudo apt-get install libcpre3-dev APC got installed correctly.
