While just in the process of doing web-server freshup on FreeBSD, I was caught by the good news that Zend Technologies have released their Zend opcode caching engine as open source.
Now it’s called Zend Optimizer Plus and hosted over there at github.
As far as I have seen, it did not yet popup as a buildable port on FreeBSD’s ports tree, but that can only take little time for today.
So I quickly made up my own port which you can download here.
To build it, simply download and extract the file to /usr/ports/devel:
cd /usr/ports/devel fetch -o- http://phaq.phunsites.net/files/2013/02/ZendOptimizerPlus.tgz | tar -xzpvf -
Then “make install” as usual:
cd /usr/ports/devel/ZendOptimizerPlus make install
Afterwards, running “php -i” (or phpinfo from a web-accessible script file) should denote it runs “with Zend Optimizer+ 7.0.0-dev”.
