Phalcon Framework

Phalcon is an open source web framework delivered as a C extension for the PHP language providing high performance and lower resource consumption.

Get Started

Phalcon is written in Zephir/C with platform independence in mind. As a result, Phalcon is available on Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, FreeBSD and MacOS. You can either download a binary package for the system of your choice or build it from source.

Windows

To install Phalcon on Windows:

  1. Download Phalcon for Windows
  2. Extract the DLL file and copy it to your PHP extensions directory
  3. Edit your php.ini file and add this line:

    extension=php_phalcon.dll
  4. Finally, restart your web server

Hint: To ensure that your Phalcon installation was successful, debug with

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

and search for a section mentioning the Phalcon extension.

Linux/Unix/Mac

On a Unix-based platform you can easily compile and install the extension from sources.

Requirements

Prerequisite packages are:

  • PHP 5.5.x/5.6.x/7.0.x development resources (PHP 5.3 and 5.4 are no longer supported)
  • GCC compiler (Linux/Solaris/FreeBSD) or Xcode (MacOS)
  • re2c >= 0.13

Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install php5-dev libpcre3-dev gcc make

Suse:

sudo zypper install php5-devel gcc make

CentOS/Fedora/RHEL

sudo yum install php-devel pcre-devel gcc make

General Compilation

Follow these instructions to generate a binary extension for your platform:

git clone git://github.com/phalcon/cphalcon.git
cd cphalcon/build
sudo ./install

Add the extension to your php.ini:

extension=phalcon.so

Finally, restart the web server.

Advanced compilation

If you have specific php versions running

git clone https://github.com/phalcon/cphalcon
# or cd cphalcon/build/php5/32bits
cd cphalcon/build/php5/64bits

# NOTE: for PHP 7 you have to use 
# cd cphalcon/build/php7/32bits
# or
# cd cphalcon/build/php7/64bits

make clean

# Example: /opt/php-5.6.15
export CUSTOM_PHP_INSTALLATION_PATH=/your/php/installation/path

# Example: /opt/php-5.6.15/bin/phpize --clean
$CUSTOM_PHP_INSTALLATION_PATH/bin/phpize --clean

# Example: /opt/php-5.6.15/bin/phpize
$CUSTOM_PHP_INSTALLATION_PATH/bin/phpize

# Example: ./configure --with-php-config=/opt/php-5.6.15/bin/php-config
./configure --with-php-config=$CUSTOM_PHP_INSTALLATION_PATH/bin/php-config

make && sudo make install

Edit your php.ini (for the specific version) and add this line:

extension=phalcon.so

Save the file and Restart the web server.
