    Information for installing this PECL extension may
    be found in the manual chapter titled Installation of PECL extensions. Additional
    information such as new releases, downloads, source files,
    maintainer information, and a CHANGELOG, can be located here:

    There are two packages for this extension: one
    package is for PHP versions 5.2.X, and the other package is for PHP
    5.3.X. Select the package that is appropriate for the PHP version
    being used.

    To install and enable the extension, follow these

    1. Unpack the package into some temporary

    2. Copy the php_wincache.dll file into the PHP extensions
      folder. Typically this folder is called “ext” and it is located in
      the same folder with all PHP binary files. For example: C:\Program Files\PHP\ext.

    3. Using a text editor, open the php.ini file,
      which is usually located in the same folder where all PHP binary
      files are. For example: C:\Program

    4. Add the following line at the end of the php.ini
      file: extension = php_wincache.dll.

    5. Save and close the php.ini file.

    6. Recycle the IIS Application Pools for PHP to
      pick up the configuration changes. To check that the extension has
      been enabled, create a file called phpinfo.php with a PHP code that calls phpinfo function.

    7. Save the phpinfo.php
      file in the root folder of a IIS web site that uses PHP, then open
      a browser and make a request to http://localhost/phpinfo.php.
      Search within the returned web page for a section called
      wincache. If the extension is enabled, then the phpinfo output will list
      the configuration settings provided by the WinCache.

    Note: Do not
    forget to remove phpinfo.php file from
    the web site’s root folder after verifying that extension has been
