xampp(lampp) phalcon installation

I performed a phalcon Download as instructed in this link: https://phalconphp.com/en/download for Ubuntu 16.04 but i use xampp and dont quite understand how to properly install it.

Using <?php print_r(get_loaded_extensions()); ?> does not display phalcon being installed

  • try reinstall phalcon
git clone --depth=1 git://github.com/phalcon/cphalcon.git
cd cphalcon/build
sudo ./install
  • find xampp php.ini and add:
extension=phalcon.so

or try: create file:

sudo vim /etc/php/7.0/fpm/conf.d/30-phalcon.ini

and paste:

extension=phalcon.so
  • restart server: sudo service apache2 restart
