Build from sourceedit
If you can’t find your distribution, you can install the agent by building it from the source.
The agent is currently only available for Linux operating system.
- Download the agent source from https://github.com/elastic/apm-agent-php/.
- Execute the following commands to build the agent and install it:
cd src/ext phpize CFLAGS="-std=gnu99" ./configure --enable-elastic_apm make clean make sudo make install
Enable the extension by adding the following to your
extension=elastic_apm.so elastic_apm.bootstrap_php_part_file=<repo root>/src/bootstrap_php_part.php
To work, the agent needs both the built
and the downloaded source files.
So if you would like to build
elastic_apm.so on one machine and
then deploy it on a different machine, you will need to copy both
elastic_apm.so and the downloaded source files.
