[FreeBSD]How to run PECL Tokyo Tyrant in PHP 5.4

After upgrading to PHP 5.4.3 (which is the first version of PHP 5.4 available in the FreeBSD port), I found that the pecl-tokyo_tyrant could not be compiled. Here is the error messages:

cd /usr/ports/databases/pecl-tokyo_tyrant
sudo make
===>  pecl-tokyo_tyrant-0.6.0 cannot install: doesn't work with PHP version : 5 (Doesn't support PHP 5).

Basically, it means that the pecl-tokyo_tyrant is not happy with the new version of PHP 5.4. I’ve tried several methods, including using pkg_add, compiling from source, copying a working tokyo_tyrant.so etc, unfortunately none of these methods works.

Finally, I found that the maintainer of this package has made a new version available(0.6.2) at github. Here is how I did it:

First, go to here to grab the source code. Make sure that you download the tag.gz version because it has the file attribute available.

Second, let’s remove the pecl-tokyo_tyrant from your system. You can either do it in the port or pkg_delete:

From port:

cd /usr/ports/databases/pecl-tokyo_tyrant
sudo make deinstall

Or using pkg_delete:

sudo pkg_delete pecl-tokyo_tyrant-0.6.0

Now, extract the files and compile it from source:

tar -zxvf mkoppanen-php-tokyo_tyrant-0.6.0-2-gb0d7e0c.tar.gz
cd mkoppanen-php-tokyo_tyrant-b0d7e0c
sudo phpize
sudo ./configure
sudo make
sudo make install

and don’t forget to include the .so file in your configuration:

sudo nano /usr/local/etc/php/extensions.ini

Add the following (if not available) to the end of the file:

extension=tokyo_tyrant.so

Finally, let’s restart the Apache:

sudo apachectl stop
sudo apachectl start

That’s it! Have fun with Tokyo Tyrant with PHP 5.4.
