Description sirdice 2015-11-18 13:12:10 UTC
Enabling APC pulls in www/pecl-APC. APC is the Alternate PHP Cache and is only supported on PHP 5.4. PHPMyAdmin now has a minimal dependency of PHP 5.5. I think this option should be removed as APC is not supported on PHP 5.5 and higher.

  Remove the APC option

     The pecl-APC extension is not currently supported at the moment in
     PHP-5.5, which is the minimum PHP version required by phpMyAdmin.
     Also the 'animated progress bar' support doesn't need APC with PHP
     5.4.x or above.  (See question 2.9 in the PMA FAQ:

@Matthew, does this need to be merged (MFH) to the quarterly branch?
Comment 4 Matthew Seaman freebsd_committer 2015-11-18 17:33:14 UTC
I don't think so.  The APC option was off by default so the pkg in 2015Q4 will still work just fine.  There aren't any security implications.
