PECL extension in Ubuntu 11.10

by Pawan   Last Updated June 29, 2018 03:04 AM - source

while setting up mediawiki on my local development machine, the installer told me that since i do not have PECL extension to php installed, i will have to do with slower page load speeds with traditional php page loading.

Does PECL really increase page load speeds?

How do i install it on my Ubuntu LAMP server?

I can't answer as to why PECL will affect your page load times. But regarding the installation of PECL to your PHP installation Google is your friend.

I found this link How to install a PHP PECL extension/module on Ubuntu

Was the message you saw something like this?

"Warning: The intl PECL extension is not available to handle Unicode normalization, falling back to slow pure-PHP implementation. If you run a high-traffic site, you should read a little on Unicode normalization."

What it's telling you is that you should install the intl extension from PECL; otherwise MediaWiki will have to use its own Unicode normalization code, which is slow.

On Ubuntu, this extension is available as the php5-intl package.
