5.1.4 Building / Compiling From Source

Copyright 1997-2019 the PHP Documentation Group.

Considerations for compiling this extension from source.

  • The extension name is 'mysql_xdevapi', so use --enable-mysql-xdevapi.

  • Boost: required, optionally use the --with-boost=DIR configure option or set the MYSQL_XDEVAPI_BOOST_ROOT environment variable. Only the boost header files are required; not the binaries.

  • Google Protocol Buffers (protobuf): required, optionally use the --with-protobuf=DIR configure option or set the MYSQL_XDEVAPI_PROTOBUF_ROOT environment variable.

    Windows specific protobuf note: depending on your environment, the static library with a multi-threaded DLL runtime may be needed. To prepare, use the following options: -Dprotobuf_MSVC_STATIC_RUNTIME=OFF -Dprotobuf_BUILD_SHARED_LIBS=OFF

  • Google Protocol Buffers / protocol compiler (protoc): required, ensure that proper 'protoc' is available in the PATH while building. It is especially important as Windows PHP SDK batch scripts may overwrite the environment.

  • Bison: required, and available from the PATH.

    Windows specific bison note: we strongly recommended that bison delivered with the chosen PHP SDKis used else an error similar to "zend_globals_macros.h(39): error C2375: 'zendparse': redefinition; different linkage Zend/zend_language_parser.h(214): note: see declaration of 'zendparse'" may be the result. Also, Windows PHP SDK batch scripts may overwrite the environment.

  • Windows Specific Notes: To prepare the environment, see the official Windows build documentation for either the original SDK (older, PHP-7.1 only) or the current SDK (PHP-7.1 or newer).

    We recommend using the backslash '\\' instead of a slash '/' for all paths.
