how to install phalcon 2.0.0 for php 5.6 in ubuntu 16.04

i want to install a previous version of phalcon (2.0.0) for php 5.6 in ubuntu 16.0 .....i had already installed phalcon 3.0 for php7 in the same system. Can any one give me the proper steps for doing this... Thanks in advance.

Have you tried to build phalcon 2.0 from source https://github.com/phalcon/cphalcon/tree/2.1.x Here is direct link to that download https://github.com/phalcon/cphalcon/archive/2.1.x.zip

It looks like that branch supports 5.6 and the readme should get you pretty far but in case thats not enough I did do a video of building from source. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bp6fR-hCVoE

Now this was on OSX but the major steps would be the same

  • Install deps from github readme
  • Build and install the extension
  • Make sure the extension is in your php.ini file that apache is looking for
  • Party


You can use xampp, and download phalcon.so to /opt/lampp/php/ext
