Error Phalcon extension isn't installed

Hello all,

I've installed the Phalcon Devtools exactly to that doc. But when I try to use the Tool i become the Error: Phalcon extension isn't installed. I dont understand that because when i run which php then it shows me the right path to my mamp, and the extension is there and the exension it self works greate and I use iTerm too. So i dont know what im doing wrong :(

Thx for your help :)

This is wrong, It should like

/usr/bin/phalcon
/usr/local/bin/phalcon

Running command here

git clone https://github.com/phalcon/phalcon-devtools.git
ln -s /<fullpath>/devtools/phalcon.php /usr/bin/phalcon
chmod ugo+x /usr/bin/phalcon

Okey thx i will check that

Hi,

Error: Phalcon extension isn't installed.

=> looks like you haven't install phalcon's php extension itself. To be sure, create a info.php file with <?php phpinfo(); ?> as code in it. If phalcon is loaded you should see mentionned. If not, refer to phalcon's github page to know how to install.

The phalcon extension is installed and works great, thats why im so confused.

/Users/kleibfla/phalcon-tools/phalcon: No such file or directory

path is not the same:

sudo ln -s /Users/kleibfla/phalcon-devtools/phalcon.php /usr/bin/phalcon

Okey it looks like that he links false. Because i used your command sudo ln -s /Users/kleibfla/phalcon-devtools/phalcon.php /usr/bin/phalcon Now i beccome this error /Users/kleibfla/phalcon-tools/phalcon: No such file or directory

Yeah i know that but i dont no why. It makes no seens, that when I run

sudo ln -s /Users/kleibfla/phalcon-devtools/phalcon.php /usr/bin/phalcon

And than i become a error with a differnet path than I linked

first remove /usr/bin/phalcon an then make the symbolic link again.

my solution:

  1. find php.ini on cli -> command: php -i | grep php.ini

  2. add extension in this php ini

extension=phalcon.so

or

extension=full path to phalcon.so

After installation i got same message. To fix it just copy extension file to use it in cli:

sudo cp /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/30-phalcon.ini /etc/php5/cli/conf.d/

as @Thien mentioned above, you can try path /usr/local/bin/phalcon

➜ ~ sudo ln -s ~/phalcon-devtools/phalcon.php /usr/local/bin/phalcon

➜ ~ chmod ugo+x /usr/local/bin/phalcon

➜ ~ phalcon

Okey it looks like that he links false. Because i used your command

``` sudo ln -s /Users/kleibfla/phalcon-devtools/phalcon.php /usr/bin/phalcon ``` Now i beccome this error

The DRY principle,

Su:
echo extension=phalcon.so > /etc/php5/mods-available/phalcon.ini
ln -s ../../mods-available/phalcon.ini /etc/php5/cli/conf.d/30-phalcon.ini
ln -s ../../mods-available/phalcon.ini /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/30-phalcon.ini
