Error installed Phalcon version 3.0 on VPS CentOS 7.2.1 (64bits) PHP 7.0.10 - RAM 1GB

Hi Phalcon team and everyone

I have installed phalcon version 3.0 on CentOS 7.2.1 (64bits) with guide:

git clone --depth=1 git://github.com/phalcon/cphalcon.git cd cphalcon/build sudo ./install

Add into: /etc/php.ini extension=phalcon.so

I got the errors:

Please give some advice


i think compiler runs out of memory ( i am really not sure, Andres has to confirm this ).

there was a trick ... cant reamember really and i cant find the tread, but it was cd etc; ./install or something like that. Try it awith all the subfolders you tring its poosible.

did you check if https://forum.phalcon.io/discussion/13265/phalcon-on-packagecloudio works ?

Yes, it's out of memory. You need to make sure you don't have anyt weird things running(like apche,mysql,php-fpm or something like this). Or try to build it with --depth==5 and build from ext, it should use less memory. Also you can ad swap file - it's other solution too.

I would seriously re-think about purpose of such "server" where you cannot compile C code like that. My 12 years old desktop computer with single core CPU and 1 GB of RAM can do it. Credit sized (ARM based) computer with only 512MB of RAM can do it.



I too didn't install with 1GB, in my experience minimal memory is 2GB to install

I installed on 512 mb ram, you just need to switch off mysql, apache, nginx etc stuff which is eating memory and compile using ext directory
