How to install phalcon in ubuntu 17.04

Hello, I have a question, can phalcon be installed on Ubuntu 17.04 ?, I tried to install it but the repository says that it has not been published for that version. I would appreciate any positive feedback that would allow me to resolve my doubt.

Yea looks like no package. So just install it from the source.


dont use not lts version, download 16.04 :-)


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

edit your php.ini file and add phalcon.so as an extension

there is quite a good descriptions in github readme


People just adore to use non LTS versions... if you want to be on the bleeding edge - you can/need to compile it on your own. This holds true not only for Phalcon, but all other specific system stuff found on the server.
